At least the fines were a little higher this time.

To bad the court systems hand out the fines and not the DNR.

You would see people loosing boats and fishing privileges for life!

Or even better - let Oaklane hand out the fines! Right Oak?

What's up with fisherman from Sidney ? The last round up netted several people from there also.

You know what, these are a hell of a lot better punishments than that rediculous 10.00 and costs. I posted the first article about the double dipping, and after hearing the punishments I was apalled! If we had anything to do with these stiffening sentences, than I applaud us!

They should confiscate their gear too. I'm sure most will have more than a couple hundred in rods, reels, and tackle. Then they know they won't be fishing until they get it replaced.

I wish they would list the amout of fish they were over the limit. And what's with them not having to pay for restitution until they get their licence back?
Why not pay that now? They went over the limit now. And like stated above, what's going to keep them from fishing in the meantime?

These small fines are not a deterrent, if anything they are an encouragement to go out and overlimit each year until caught.

Following limits is not rocket science. Even for those from Sidney ;)

Punishment should be:

1st lifetime offense in ANY jurisdiction
20 days suspended
$500 per fish over limit
Loss of license for a year
Loss of gear recovered at crime

2nd lifetime offense in ANY jurisdiction
20 days in jail
$1000 per fish over limit
Loss of license for 5 years
Loss of gear recovered at crime, including boat and trailer

3rd lifetime offense in ANY jurisdiction
40 days in jail
$2000 per fish over limit
Loss of License for LIFE
Loss of gear recovered at crime, including boat and trailer

I think guilty parties should feel the pinch in his wallet, but jailtime? Six walleyes over your limit is a solid fine for sure. It's not something to go to jail for. Next thing we'll be throwing cigerette smokers in jail.
