Southeast charter guide fined $520 after plea

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Gustavus
Type: Conviction
On 8/25/11 Steve E. Petty, 42, of Gustavus, entered a no contest plea in Hoonah District Court to one count of failing to carry proof of a sportfish charter business license and one count of making a false statement on his 2011 sportfish license. Petty was initially contacted as he actively guided paying sportfish charter clients near Goose Island in Icy Strait on 7/16/11. Petty was fined a total of $520 for both offenses.


  1. In other news the kodiak drag fleet continues to criminally underreported their catch of Halibut enroute to fulfilling their TAC of Flatfish and Cod.

  2. What was the false statement on his sportfishing license? Let me quess - he claimed he was a state resident?
