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 limit regulations.

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.
