Troopers charge Sitka pair with guiding violations

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Sitka
Type: Sportfish guide violations
On 11/15/11 Alaska Wildlife Troopers, Sitka Post, charged Robert L. Warren, 34, and Michael R. Keating, 55, both of Sitka, for sportfish guiding violations. The violations are a result of Warren being observed with four clients on a chartered trip with Big Blue Fisheries while using a vessel not registered to sportfish guide. Investigation showed Keating, owner of Big Blue, had compelled Warren to charter the clients on a vessel Keating knew was unregistered and did not have saltwater logbooks assigned. Warren was charged for failing to register the sportfish guide vessel and for failing to obtain a sportfish guide logbook. Keating was charged with two counts of sportfish guide operator assisting in a violation. Arraignments are set for 11/29/11 in Sitka District Court.
