    Default Byers - Poacher Fined $100 Calvert

    Here is the outcome of this matter, from court records: guilty verdict, Byers had to pay what amounts to $ 100 fine.
    A bushel of oysters will sell anywhere for $25. and up. What do you gents think? I will just be the "reporter" this time. You might remember that he has a long and glorious record. Poaching in "Gina Marie".

    A guilty verdict on this charge is supposed to come with 30 points which is a 365 day license suspension. of coures his license was already suspended. What happens now?

    I thought same as rj - if caught while on suspended license - it was bad news.

    Byers should not have been out on the water - just goes to show how little respect some have for the rules.

    No surprise why some repeat poachers have 10 , 20 even 30 convictions.

    Judges keep handing out fines that are hardly a slap on the wrist.

    We need a few judges from Fla. up here. There , fish / game violations carry serious fines and are handed out.

    Guess our judges are into catch / release with poachers.
