    Wow! He gets to keep the boat without motors..... and forfeits all other fishing gear... kind of surprised they didn’t take the boat too...

    The sad part about all this is everyone here also has effectively had a 2 year prohibition of holding a Canadian fishing license or fishing in BC as well... does Hoover and Magee’s covid years off count as time served?

    They shoulda thrown the book at him and returned his Cutwater with replacement E-Tecs instead.
    I’m guessing there is some sort of international law requiring the vessel be returned, so they took everything else.... I remember some years back when they caught a Chinese ship loaded with Salmon destined for the PNW rivers.... The vessel had to be returned to China...

    The inside scoop regarding the boat/hull, is that it is owned jointly with the guys’ wife, so it was released to her.

    Thanks for the followup, I'm glad they got spanked, wish they could have taken their boat too. I remember seeing these guys up there that year,
