Seiner fished at Hoonah after closure, troopers say

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Hoonah
Type: Commercial fish closed waters
On 7/12/11 Bryan Howey, 43, of Sitka, was cited by Hoonah Wildlife Troopers for commercial purse seine fishing in closed waters. At 5:04 p.m. troopers contacted Howey, who was towing his seine and fishing just off Hawk Inlet. Howey, the skipper onboard, apparently was unaware that the purse seine fishery on the Hawk Inlet shoreline closed at 5 p.m. Arraignment set for 7/20/11 in Hoonah District Court.
