    These guys don't get it. They make money today and then there is none tomorrow when the stripers are gone. Idiots.

    • Senegal frees Russian ship caught for 'illegal fishing'


      Senegal says its fishing resources are being pillaged
      Continue reading the main story Related Stories

      Senegal has freed a Russian ship after its owner paid a $1.2m (?720,000) fine for fishing illegally in its waters, a government minister has said.
      Haidar El-Alia said Senegal had shown that it would not allow the "looting of our seas" by "pirates".
      Russia had condemned the "aggressive conduct of Senegalese troops" when the ship was seized on 5 January.
      West African governments are battling to curb illegal fishing, which is threatening fishing stocks.
      Mr El-Alia, the Fisheries Minister, told BBC Afrique that local people were dependent on fish for food and their livelihood.
      The government would not tolerate foreign-owned firms making profits by fishing illegally in Senegalese waters, he added.
      They turned their catches into "fishmeal to feed animals in their countries", Mr El-Alia said.
      Sixty-two Russians and 20 nationals from Guinea-Bissau were detained when the Senegalese navy raided the ship, Oleg Naydenov.
      Mr El-Alia denied the arrests had led to diplomatic tensions with the Russian government.
      "This is not about the Russian state. It's true it's a Russian boat but this was a private owner and we'd have done the same thing if it was a Chinese, French or Spanish ship," he said.

    I agree and in our country it is the russians and the chinese too. Go to chinatown in philly and you will see illegal blackfish all over the place. Also the guys on the intlet jetties who say no spek inglish! when they get busted. About time some of these damn people learn to read and talk in our language.


    Another bust a spanish guy with 228 of them. I am sick and tired of them violating our laws they should take his boat too. Go back to your own country and poach the fish there!

    Silver Spring Man Found Guilty of Poaching 228 Undersized Striped Bass

    3/24/2014 | Posted by kking
    Tags: Striped Bass, NRP
    A Silver Spring man was found guilty last Friday in Annapolis District Court of possessing 228 undersized striped bass.
    Hervin O. Nunez-Aleman, 34, pleaded guilty to a single violation. He was fined $2,000 and placed on unsupervised probation.
    An officer with the Maryland Natural Resources Police was on patrol at Sandy Point State Park on August 31 at 1:30 a.m., when he stopped a boat returning to the marina.
    After receiving permission from Nunez-Aleman, the boat owner, to check the coolers aboard the 14-foot recreational vessel, the officer found 228 striped bass under the legal minimum of 18 inches. The officer also found about 30 pounds of white perch in the coolers. None of the four people on the boat had a fishing license.
    The trial of a fishing companion, Amaya Chicas, is set for April 18 in Annapolis District Court. The district courts in Anne Arundel County participate in a program that highlights natural resources cases on specific day each month. Under the program, cases including fishing, hunting, boating and tree expert violations are heard on a specific day each month in the region where they occurred.
    Citizens who see conservation violations, maritime emergencies or other law enforcement issues on the Chesapeake Bay or the State's public lands are urged to call 800-628-9944.

    Most of the time they already wiped out the fish from their country. That's why they come here. Don't you know the streets of America are paved with fish? 228 is a lot. Hope they give him some stronger fines and don't let him plea out. A**wipe.

    Agree, penalty needs to exceed the crime, not be weaker than it.

    I think this is a follow up to that. They pleaded guilty. I wonder what their sentence will be. Hall a million dollars in stripers.

    Default 13 charged with illegal harvest, sale of striped bass

    "The illegal poaching of striped bass by commercial fishermen can have a huge collective impact on the fish resource and has the potential to devastate the future livelihoods of law abiding commercial fishermen," said John C. Cruden, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Environment and Natural Resources Division.

    "The vast majority of fishermen do respect the law and carefully monitor their harvest to ensure they stay within the well-researched limits. Those who deliberately break the law will be prosecuted."

    Thanks for reporting that finchaser. Hopefully the judge who does the sentencing is smart enough to send a message.

    OMG this turns my stomach. He's going to prison and will still be fire chief when he comes out????????? someone should sink this guys boat! What a scumbag!!!!!!!!!
    Some of the most disturbing comments:

    " The Tilghman Island Volunteer Fire Company recently decided that Lednum should continue as chief while he's in prison. Two marinas have offered to dock the Kristin Marie for free. A waterman friend will be mowing his lawn while he's gone.
    "I don't know what the state of Maryland is trying to do," said Johnny Haddaway, 78, a third-generation waterman whose house sits in the shadow of the island's drawbridge. "They are trying to get rid of watermen is what they are trying to do."

    Patricia McGlannan, co-owner of the Tilghman Island Country Store, notes that Lednum and the other men convicted in the poaching scheme "are the very same people who take care of the community and do all the volunteering. So there is your great irony. ... I'm not for illegal fishing, but you meet the guy and you say, 'Damn, it's just fish.'"

    Lednum and Hayden admitted to illegally selling a total of 185,925 pounds of rockfish worth nearly $500,000, court records show.

    Hayden and Lednum say 10 to 12 other boats had unattended nets in the area before the 2011 season opened. Hayden said that's why residents were not upset with them: "Everybody was doing it! Why would you argue if everybody is doing it?"



    Despicable that's for sure! Eff you Fire Capt Billy Lednum you are a POS and a disgrace to firemen everywhere!!!

    Poaching bust up north. Wish they would hit the jetties in CM soon. Heard of many over limit blackfish catches already.

    "Do DFW Conservation Police Officers work at night, or on the weekend, or in the city?
    The answer to all of these is yes!

    Last night Conservation Officers Jordan Holmes, Trevor Anderson, and Lt. Joseph Kuechler worked the Newark Bay Complex and Hudson River checking striped bass anglers for compliance. Sixteen fishermen were contacted, resulting in the issuance of four summonses for possession of undersized striped bass and one summons for possession of striped bass over the daily limit.

    Did you spot the Statue of Liberty in the background?"
