A Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Southern Strikeforce agent cited a Montegut man for alleged spotted sea trout fishing violations on Dec. 17 in Terrebonne Parish.
Agent Lucas Hidalgo cited Mark J. Trahan, 42, for possession of 35 undersized spotted sea trout and possessing over the limit of spotted sea trout.
Agent Hidalgo stopped Trahan in Robinson Canal in Chauvin to conduct a boaters safety inspection. During the inspection, Agent Hidalgo found Trahan in possession of 49 spotted sea trout of which 35 were undersized. The daily limit for spotted sea trout is 25 per person and the minimum legal length is 12 inches.
Possessing over the limit of spotted sea trout and possessing undersized spotted sea trout each carries a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail for each offense. Trahan may also face a civil restitution charge of $1,013.95 for the 35 undersized spotted sea trout.
