New Orleans men caught with 40 more reds than legally allowed, LDWF says
All but one redfish were undersized, agency said.
Charles H. Stafford III, 22, and 25-year-old Percy I. Morgan Jr. were cited for taking over double the daily limit and undersized red drum after being found in possession of 50 red drum, the LDWF said.
All of the red drum were under the legal size limit of 16 inches except for one. The daily limit on red drum is five fish per person, which put the men 40 red drum over the limit.
Possessing over the double the daily limit of red drum carries up to a $950 fine or up to 120 days in jail. Taking undersized red drum brings up to a $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail. Additionally, the men will be accessed $1,323.50 in restitution for the illegally taken fish.
The redfish were donated them to a local charity.
