Fishing: Roger’s Remarks for Dec. 13

As you may have heard, a couple of Fresno anglers were arrested last week on suspicion of selling stripers on the black market, along with other charges, according to a California Department of Fish and Wildlife news release. These guys, the report stated, also had been cited by wardens eight times in the past year. Whoa! I believe, from conversations with law enforcement officials, that this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to poaching and overfishing.
