Anglers in Mississippi didn’t follow the statewide daily creel limit of 30 crappie and were caught with 152 over the limit at the Magnolia State’s Enid Lake. According to reports, authorities were tipped off about some “suspicious activity” going on at the lake from someone who called to make the report.
Cpl. Brian Tallent of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks made the bust and charged two unidentified anglers with the game violations. Col. Jerry Carter of the DWFP told reporters, “We would like to thank the general public for reporting game violations thereby allowing our officers to further protect our state’s wildlife resources. We would also like to thank Cpl. Brian Tallent for his work in this investigation.”
