Sportfish guide fined $5,000 for unlicensed trips

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Juneau
Type: Sportfish guiding without license
On 1/4/12 in Juneau District Court, Joel Duby, 27, of Washington, pled guilty to one count of sportfish guiding without a guide license during 2007. Duby was fined $5,000 and may not apply for an Alaska sportfish or guide license for one year. Charges stemmed from a joint investigation between the Alaska Wildlife Troopers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service into a Juneau-based sportfishing company. During the investigation it was found that Duby had guided several trips during May of 2007 on the charter vessel Brody out of Auke Bay during which time he did not possess a valid 2007 sportfish guide license.
