Unattended Fishing Lines

Unattended Fishing Line

While patrolling Long Lake in Michigan, a large lake in Alpena and Presque Isle counties, a conservation noticed a few unattended fishing lines.


He walked up to the tip ups and tripped some of the flags signaling that a fish was caught, waited 30 minutes to respond, no one did. The officer followed the footprints to a house where a fisherman admitted they were his lines.

His reasons: The fisherman told Webster that he was playing an exciting game of solitaire on the computer and had forgotten about fishing. He and a neighbor were ticketed for unattended lines, a misdemeanor that typically costs $100 to $150.
