    Default 33 walleye over limit

    Four Americans fined for over-fishing on Rice Lake
    Peterborough This Week
    Four American residents have been fined $11,900 for fishing offenses on Rice Lake.

    On Jan. 12, Daniel Lee Arp and William John Hilinski, both of Erin, Tennessee, and Joseph Paul Hilinski and Robert William Hilinski, both of Glenshaw, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to having an over-limit of fish and packaging fish in a way that they could not be easily counted. Each was fined $2,475 for the over-limit and $500 for improper packaging. Each man is also banned from angling in Ontario for three years. The fish and a cooler were forfeited to the Crown.

    The incident took place on June 25 when MNR officers were inspecting anglers leaving cottages in the Rice Lake area.

    The four men were stopped and their vehicle was found to have a large cooler attached to it. In the cooler, conservation officers found multiple bags of frozen fish, most marked bass and walleye. Officers suspected an over-limit of walleye and seized the cooler and its contents. Once the contents were defrosted, officers counted 49 walleye. This was an over-limit of 33 fish as the men could only possess four walleye each.

    Out of curiosity, why did you post this on the TN board?

    what does that have do with it ???? the other two are from Pa. again what does that have to do with it ???? you started the post out with four Americans !!!! to me that is not a good way to start a post, kind of makes it sound like you have something against us Americans because 4 people went and done something stupid !!!! could have been worded differently !!! and to me the charges was a little too easy for them !!! they should also have spent some jail time and never be able to fish the waters of Canada ever again !!!!

    I have fished for smallmouth on Lake Kishkutina at Nestor Falls in Ontario. My gosh, you can catch 200 smallies a day there if your arms hold up and the muskies don't wreck your gear, BUT who would want to keep that many? I thoroughly enjoyed catching and releasing all day and keeping only one per day for dinner. 8 of us stayed a week there and came back to Arkansas with ZERO fish. Sore lipped a ton of them though!

    Abusive poachers who have no respect for laws and game & fish regulations should be banned for at least 5 years and fined big on the first offense, then if it happens again.........banned for life. Just my opinion.

    Drink a Kokanee for me up there. GTT
