Texas Fisherman Cited For Red Snapper Limit And Size Violations

June 23, 2005

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents cited a Beaumont, Texas, man for allegedly violating federal fishery regulations for possession of undersized red snapper and for being over the legal limit on June 15.
Charles Huckaby, 62, was seen fishing approximately 16 miles southeast of Sabine Pass in the Gulf of Mexico, and was found in possession of 18 red snapper under the minimum recreational size limit of 16 inches. The legal limit for red snapper is four per person per day.

The agents were working in federal waters under a Joint Enforcement Agreement between the National Marine Fisheries Service and the LDWF Enforcement Division. The violations will be filed through the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the fish are being held for evidence.

Agents participating in this case were Sgt. David Sanford, and Agents Aaron Herpin and Jason Stagg.
