Illinois Anglers Get Caught With Some ĎExpensiveí Fish

Four Illinois anglers are facing some stiff fines after being caught in possession of 225 bluegill they illegally harvested from Lake Show-Me in Memphis.

According to Missouri Department of Conservation Agent Gary Miller, the fishermen were caught with the fish on April 15th. The individual limit at Lake Show-Me is 20 bluegill. In addition to the limit issues, the four anglers also were ticketed for failure to keep their fish separate of distinctly identifiable.

Each defendant is facing an $85 fine for being overlimit on fish. According to the fine, cost and bond schedule for wildlife code offenses, the anglers also face a $10 fine per fish over the limit. That means, combined, the four fishermen will have to pay $1,450 for the 145 fish they had over the limit in addition to the fines and court costs for being over limit and failing to keep their fish separate or identifiable for ownership purposes.

The four defendants were assigned an April 24th court date in the Scotland County Associate Circuit Court.
