A pair of Amherstburg fishermen have been fined a total of $2,500 for exceeding walleye catch limits.

Robert Gignac Jr. and Robert Gignac Sr. pleaded guilty in provincial offences court last week to possessing an over-limit of walleye caught in Lake Erie. Each of the men was fined $1,000, and Gignac Jr. was fined an additional $500 for transporting illegally caught fish.

On Aug. 1, 2017, the Gignacs and a third man were fishing in the Chatham-Kent waters of Lake Erie east of Wheatley in a boat called the “Buckeye.”

I am confused, it says they had a cooler full of 17 fish (already above the 6 fish per person limit) and said they seized all 27 fish but were 9 over the limit? Wouldn't 9 over the limit be 21 fish? 27 fish seized would be 15 fish over the limit?

I agree with you on the numbers....Maybe the reporter messed up as I aslo came up with 15 over limit fish

They didn't include the captain and owner of the boat.
3 people= 21 fish

This also happened in wheatley I believe.
