Anglers from Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, and Florida face $14,000 in fines and restitution for more than the legal limit of fish in Minnesota.

A Sept. 20 call to the Turn In Poacher (TIP) hotline led DNR conservation officers (CO) to four fisherman in possession of 240 perch over the legal limit. The legal limit for perch in Minnesota is 20 per day and 40 in possession.
CO Tim Collette of Longville and a Cass County Boat and Water deputy visited the resort cabin the men were staying in at Woman Lake near Hackensack, where they discovered 23 packages of frozen fish. An additional 14 bags of frozen fish was found in the resort office freezer.

Peter Vandernoord, 90, Dyer, Ind.; Clarence D. Landhuis, 79, Orlando, Fla.; and Herbert V. Weele, 78 and John Templeman, 76, both of Lansing, Ill. are each charged with possessing 60 perch over the legal limit, a gross overlimit of fish. Fine and restitution could total nearly $2,000 for each man. If convicted they could lose their fishing licenses for three years. No trial date has been set.
