Alright boys Im posting this as to inform you all of the fines for fishing in a MLPA. I got popped by an under cover warden on a kayak just 200 ft inside the line of a MLPA near SB. Warden said he was giving me a warning since the MLPA was new and the whole fleet was in the MLPA that day. He then took photos of all of my info and GPS position on my plotter. I asked why and he said he was going to forward the info to the D.A. Huh? I said, is the D.A. going to pursue this and he replied that he didn't want to speak for the D.A. office but that he didn't think so. Well the D.A. ate it up and 2.5 months later I got a letter to appear in criminal court. The fine 500.00 and the charge a misdemeanor I took it and plead no contest. Could have been worse I guess but I will always double check my location from now on. I wish fish and game would have been up front and given me a ticket if they were just going to sick the DA on me. If DFG acts like the bro then watch out for the bro job. They get the DA to finish you off. I know a couple other guys busted the same day and commercial or sport it was a 500.00 fine across the board. All I can say is watch the invisible line or else theyll get you. This post is just to let everyone know what an MLPA violation entails since there is alot of misinformation out there. I hope this clarifys some facts for you all. On the light side I got to see a crack head get arrested for stealing someone elses cell phone in the court room. Pretty entertaining!!!
