"Two Arrested in Fish Case"
This is the benefit of living where I live... I get incredible news on all FISH crimes... Suck it Chicago... not getting this news there.
This article reports that at 6:30 p.m. the officers spied the suspicious fishermen and asked the perps FOUR times if they had illegal, UNDERSIZED, fish and the response was always the same... nope... NO UNDERSIZED snapper or grouper ... only grunts (which is OK BTW). But these crafty officers weren't buying that fish story.
The officers had a sixth sense. Something was just not right. Hence they proceeded to look under:
- numerous grunts in the cooler
- lots of ice in the cooler
Guess what they found at the bottom of the cooler? One UNDERSIZED black grouper and two UNDERSIZED mangrove snappers.Did the officers stop looking once they caught this bounty? NO. These dedicated officers kept going... and what did they happen to find wrapped in a plastic bag, hidden underneath fishing gear, behind the cooler??? One UNDERSIZED mutton snapper...My God.
I feel safer already.
