They had three cast nets in their possession and approximately 120 game fish along with some shad.

The fish and cast nets were confiscated by Boles and Cpl. Derrell Worth, who was not far away at the time, responded to assist Boles.

The four individuals were charged with “Taking Game Fish by Illegal Methods” and one was charged for “Fishing Without a License.”

The individuals had an array of game fish including bream, crappie, catfish, and bass. It should be noted that Cpl. Worth and RFC Boles had charged one of the same four individuals earlier that afternoon for the same violation!
