$1,500 Fine for Over-limit of Walleye from Lake Erie

A Straffordville man has been fined $1,500 for a fishing violation.

Jeffrey Marr pleaded guilty and was fined $1,500 for possessing an over-limit of walleye.

Court heard that on July 27, 2017, a conservation officer was checking anglers for compliance with the Ontario Fishery Regulations in Elgin County. The officer contacted Jeffrey Marr in the village of Port Burwell after he returned from fishing on Lake Erie. An investigation revealed that Marr caught twelve walleye on that day, which is six over the daily limit for that zone. The six additional walleye were found hidden in a side compartment of the boat.

Justice of the Peace Abdul A. Chahbar heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, St. Thomas, on August 10, 2017.
