WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Game and Fish Department game wardens issued a record 190 citations during this year’s paddlefish snagging season in Williams and McKenzie counties.

Officials say this year’s season was a few days longer than last year’s, leading to an increase in citations from 177 to 190.

Enforcement Chief Robert Timian says the most prevalent violation was fishing without a license, involving 36 nonresidents and 13 residents. Only 14 violations were directly related to paddlefishing.

Other citations included boating violations, failure to obey wildlife management area rules and alcohol violations.
