On the fishing report (777-7008) from Lakeside today Capt. Dan had a report
of 25 legal size walleye's that were left in the dumpster at the St Jean ramp. Did anyone else hear about this? I hope they catch the scumbags that did it!

Somebody probably came in with over the limit in the boat. They saw the DNR checking boats as they left the gate and decided to get rid of the evidence.

If the DNR catches someone over the limit, what do they do with the excess fish? i don't think they would let them keep them. I also think they wouldn't just toss them in the dumpster.

I thought they take a picture, freeze part of the fish and use it for evidence later at the hearing. Don't slam me if I'm wrong, but I read it in Woods & water a while back.

Usually they just need one fish per person to prove "over the limit" so if there are even more fish they might just give them to someone who needs them.

Maybe to a shelter for battered women or the homeless??

It is a good question.

I watched some guys get ticketed for snaggin salmon one fall. After giving the guys the tickets the officer let the guys take the fish home with them (they were basically dead on a stringer).
I'm not sure if it's the same for being over the limit or not.
