Sturgeon Falls man hit with overfishing fine
A Sturgeon Falls man has been fined $1,050 for overfishing on Lake Nipissing. A Conservation Officer from the Ministry of Natural Resources came upon the angler who produced the legal quote of two walleye. However the CO’s detector dog sniffed out 12 walleye fillets hidden in a compartment on the man’s snowmobile. In addition to the fine, Richard Mayotte also forfeited the extra fish to the Crown.
