I just heard a quick report on the local NPR news flash that a guy who poached a chinook received a $5000 fine and had to surrender his $6000 boat, which will be used by WDFW for enforcement. Is this a typical punishment or are they making an example out of this guy? Either way is fine with me. I'm also glad to see that it was newsworthy. That indicates to me that this is a relatively harsh punishment. Maybe future poachers will think twice. What I don't understand is the lack of support that citizens seem to get when they call in and report a poacher. It hasn't happened to me, but I hear many stories of unresponsive officers.
