Good for N.C. Wildlife Resources officer J.R. Brown. Sounds like he caught his limit of illegals.
Wasn’t there a thread just yesterday about a bus full of “foreigners” being detained in Almance County NC?
“Arrested on fishing without a license charge, is it unusual or not?”
I can tell you this, if it were a US citizen caught fishing with a net in restricted wildlife areas, they’d throw away the key in most locations of the PacNW. Of course, unless you are from a tribe that has been given the right to take any and all fish they want, endangered or not. Something else that is just plain stupid.
The lawyer can b*tch all he wants, it’s a misdemeanor and yes, he can arrest you if you don’t show ID when caught breaking the law.
How can he cite someone and demand they pay the fine or show up in court if he doesn’t even know who he is giving the ticket to??
Have they lowered the standards for being a lawyer lately???

There appears to be no ‘limit’ of illegal aliens. :<)
Missouri is another state in which you dare not fish without a license. They take all your fishing equipment and when you appear before the local (fisherman) judge, any excuse is laughed at.
catch and release.
Arrested for breaking the law, is it unusual or not?
Maybe we should ask a cop, but I think that’s what they usually do.
Yup. They’re doing their damndest to spin this as a story of poor (likely illegal) immigrants kept down by The Man. The truth is, they probably couldn’t get licenses because they were in the country illegally, and they were fishing with a net, which is going to draw the attention of the authorities every time.
It’s not their race that caused their troubles, it’s their stupidity.
They got off easy.I’m on $300 bond pending my payment for fishing without a license last week.Plus,I have to buy a fishing license and show it to the judge,in order to reduce my charge to $50,from $100.
Good luck with that!
Well, lying to a law enforcement officer about a crime AND having no ID is a great way to get arrested.
Thanks.It was no biggie.Thought I had my license and didn’t.First time I’ve ever NOT been in compliance.Showed my id and was issued a citation with a $300 bond amount and let go(to fish some more,no less).Now,if I had been caught illegaly obtaining fish(net,box,snagging,etc.,,)I’d been taken to jail as well.
I was “arrested” for fishing without a license in NC in 1976 or so. Hauled before the local JP and paid a fine of $25...............
From the article, they were arrested, put in jail and held in indefinite detention without bond at all. I'm not sure how that is "getting off easy".
i always take a net when i go fishing. i use it to catch bait shrimp in the bay or shad in fresh water. since they weren’t charged with fishing with a net, what’s all this chatter about net fishing?
ALL licensing is a TAX...
Is that actually possible? Just sayin'...
Standard's? We don't need no steenkin' standards!
