TOO MANY FISH RESULTS IN FINE
Sutherland, Neb. -- A Sept. 12 surveillance of several anglers by Nebraska
Game and Parks Commission conservation officers at Sutherland Reservoir
resulted in a large fine for a Colorado man for failing to comply with bag
Run Orn, 51, of Aurora, Colo., was cited for having 34 wipers over his
daily bag limit. Anglers are allowed by Nebraska regulation to take 15
wipers under 18 inches daily. Orn had 49 wipers in his possession when he
left the lake at 10:30 pm.
Conservation officers Dwight Allbery and Dudley Sorensen of North Platte
had been watching Orn and several companions for most of the day and
checked their limits when they walked to their vehicles from a remote
location on the lake.
Orn paid a total of $771.50 by waiver which included a $50 fine, $41.50 in
court costs and $680 liquidated damages. Sorensen said that liquidated
damages are collected from anglers in possession of illegally taken fish.
He said that fish under 12 inches that are taken illegally or exceed the
bag limit have a liquidation value of $20, while those 12 inches or longer
have a liquidation value of $50.
