A Wisconsin man has been fined for fishing violations.
Richard Estridge of Danbury pleaded guilty and was fined $1,800 for possessing six more walleye than allowed under the Ontario Fishery Regulations. He was also fined $700 for possessing fish packed in a manner that they could not be easily counted.
Court heard that on July 18, 2018, conservation officers from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry inspected Estridge and his group who were in possession of walleye after fishing that day on Good Lake, north of Dryden. Officers continued their inspection at his seasonal camp and determined he was in possession of six walleye over his legal possession limit. In addition, some of the walleye inspected were packed in such a manner that the officers could not obtain an immediate count of the fish.
