Juneau troller charged with fishing closed waters

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Juneau
Type: Commercial fish closed waters
On 6/13/15 Alaska Wildlife Troopers observed a commercial hand troll vessel trolling in the area of False Point Retreat, nearly 15 miles from the nearest area open to trolling. Troopers contacted the permit holder on the vessel, Richard Catrett, 41, of Juneau. Investigation revealed Catrett had trolled in closed waters, and further retained two king salmon under the legal size limit of 28 inches. All of Catrett's catch was seized and he was issued two misdemeanor summonses for commercial hand trolling in closed waters and retaining undersized king salmon. Catrett has a mandatory court appearance in Juneau District Court.
