3 Michigan men allegedly caught with 80 walleye, far more than legal limit: report

Authorities in Michigan said they nabbed three Grand Rapids area men Thursday who were driving with 80 walleye in a vehicle—which is 65 over the state limit, according to reports.

State Department of Natural Resource officers were alerted to the men by a tipster, Mlive.com reported. The men allegedly admitted that they had fished in the Detroit River earlier in the day.


The paper reported that the penalty could be a fine of $10 per pound of fish and they may have to give up their fishing license.
