Just had my day in court on the citation I received via mail just after the close of the season. The Trooper and the Court Judge were pretty good to a whole lot of us. They reduced the fine to $50 and returned our pots, ropes and buoy’s.
Wanted to give a shout out to everyone to remind those that don’t (there were a bunch of us) to call in and report their pots missing prior to the close of the season.
Important Note: IF you report missing pots on your permit, remember to get a copy of the permit before you turn it in. The Court system does not review permits to determine if you reported the pots on the permit and it is up to you to maintain a copy.
