From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Yakutat
Type: Lingcod violation
On 4/14/14 Alaska Wildlife Troopers in Yakutat contacted Shawn McManus, 44, of Woodinville, Wash., after receiving a report through the Department of Fish and Game that McManus caught and retained 1,320 pounds of lingcod while longlining off the coast of Yakutat after lingcod had been closed by emergency order for that area. McManus was charged with retaining lingcod during a closed season, and must appear in Yakutat District Court.
