A Georgian Bay Township man has been fined $3,700 for fishing out of season.

The man, whose name was not released, pleaded guilty in Penetanguishene court on May 31 and was fined $1,200 for unlawful sport fishing and $2,500 for catching and retaining a fish during the closed season.

In February 11, 2017, a conservation officer was conducting an enforcement patrol on Severn Sound when he encountered 12 fishing lines set through the ice surrounding a fish hut with no one in the area watching the lines. The man had set the fishing lines earlier that day and left the area.

A complete waste of a trophy 50" Muskie to boot. I wonder why they never released his name. Fishing with 12 lines one time, and catching and keeping a big muskie the second time sounds like someone destined to repeat the behaviour in the future. I think the fine could have been a little stiffer.
