1,500 Fine for Walleye Angler

September 13, 2018 - A London man has been fined for a violation under the Ontario Fishery Regulations.

Brent Winegarden pleaded guilty and was fined $1,500 for catching and retaining four walleye during the closed season.

Court heard that conservation officers from the Southern Marine and Aylmer Enforcement units conducted a targeted patrol on the Thames River in London on April 10, 2018. The patrol was conducted in response to a tip about an angler who was catching and retaining walleye during the closed season. An officer observed Winegarden catching and retaining walleye and contacted him when he returned to his truck. Winegarden admitted to catching and retaining four walleye when he knew the walleye season was closed.

Regional Senior Justice of the Peace Thomas A. Stinson heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, London, on September 6, 2018.
