A Winnipeg man has been fined for a fishing violation.

Stuart Fengler pleaded guilty and was fined $1,200 for possessing five walleye over his legal limit.

Court heard that on July 12, 2018, conservation officers from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry conducted a fisheries inspection of Fengler, his wife and two sons while they were angling in Echo Bay, Lake of the Woods. The inspection revealed that each family member had a valid licence and that the family possessed 21 walleye in total – two in their boat and 19 at their cottage. Their sport fishing licences only allowed them to possess a total of 16 walleye.

Justice of the Peace Roger McCraw Jr. heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Kenora, on September 4, 2018.

For further information on fishing regulations, please consult the Ontario Fishing Regulations Summary, available at ontario.ca/fishing.
