Thanks for the information, but I already posted a message:
which had links to articles and a message on the BFHP which stated that the charges were dropped against Wilks.
Had the gill netter been a "totally legally operating commercial fisherman", I doubt things would have turned out as well for Wilks. The best thing about the whole situation is that it brought the problem of poaching and nets to the attention of more people. Unfortunately, the state of Alabama will most likely do NOTHING that amounts to anything to resolve the actual problems. Especially not with Barnett Lawless in control.
Thanks for the post!
Good luck and good fishin'
