Angler Found with 2,000 Fish Over Possession Limit

Angler's house searched after being seen keeping more than daily limit and found to be in possession of thousands of bluegills, perch and crappie over limit.

We reported back in January 2016 that an Onalaska angler was facing $24,000 in fines for being over the daily and possession limits in Wisconsin for crappie, bluegills and perch.

The LaCrosse Tribune is reported yesterday that he has plead not guilty to his 4 charges through an attorney. In his boat and house, authorities found 2,066 bluegills, 418 perch and 88 crappies, reports stated. The possession limits are 50 each.
