So me and 5 of my buddies were fishing today, we started with 116 clams. Then after a couple hours 2 friends head home. Less than 10 minutes later DFG shows up and starts counting the clams, 75. He said he can write a joint citation or one of us can take the heat. So my buddy has a court date set for august. The guy said its a misdemeanor but if you plead guilty they drop the charge to fishing w/o a license and the fine will be around $25. Last time i checked fishing w/o a license costs several hundred dollars. Does anyone have any idea how the process works? Thanks guys.
