Man Fishing at Bass Lake Cited


A Culver man was cited for violations by a Indiana Conservation Officer.

William D. Corey III, 55, was bank fishing at Bass Lake when a conservation officer checked his catch for the day. The officer found 45 crappie in his possession which is nearly twice than the allowed bag limit of 25.

Corey was given a summons to appear in court for the violation and illegal fish and fishing tackle were confiscated as evidence. If convicted, Corey faces additional fines of $690 for the replacement cost of the illegally obtained fish.

Those who enjoy the sport of fishing are reminded of all fishing regulations, including size and bag limits. A license is required to fish on state waters.
