MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin wildlife officials have arrested 13 Milwaukee-area men for catching more than 2,238 fish on the Chippewa flow-age.
Department of Natural Resources officials say the men were arrested on May 21. Warden Supervisor Rick Rosen declined to comment on the case, saying investigators are still looking into whether other people were involved.
The fish included crappies and blue gills. DNR officials say wardens needed six hours to count all the fish.
The men, who range in age from 34 to 74, face up to $71,280 in total forfeitures and restitution. DNR spokesman Jim Bishop says they were part of a church group.
