ST. LANDRY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A Louisiana fisherman, who had a good day out of the water could now be facing a fine and possible jail time.  Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents busted a St. Landry Parish man for allegedly taking over twice the daily limit of black bass on the afternoon of March 16.

Agents identified the fisherman as 42-year-old Issac Godeaux, 42, of Krotz Springs.  Agents say he was fishing the Two'O'Clock Bayou in St. Landry Parish where agents say he  was in possession of 21 black bass.  The limit on black bass in Louisiana State waters is 10 black bass per person per day.

WL&F says the penalty for catching more black bass than allowed can lead to a fine of anywhere from $100 to $350 and up to 60 days in jail.  Dodeaux may also face a total of $147 in civil restitution for the replacement value of the 11 illegally taken bass.

Agents participating in the case are Senior Agent David Boudreaux and Sgt. Lance Devillier.
