Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited a man for alleged recreational fishing violations on March 3 in Morehouse Parish.

Agents cited Chris Golden, 59, of Mer Rouge, for over the limit of black bass.

Agents made contact with Golden during a vessel patrol on Bayou Bonne Idee in Morehouse Parish.  Agents conducted a compliance check and found Golden in possession of 19 bass in the live well of his vessel, which put him nine over the legal limit of 10 bass per day.

Agents seized the bass and safely returned them to the water.

Possessing over the limit of black bass brings up to a $350 fine.

Agents participating in the case are Sgt. Wendell Weeks and Agent Stephen LaCombe.
