BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A state wildlife and fisheries agent has cited a Galliano man for alleged fishing violations on the Pointe-aux-Chenes Wildlife Management Area.

The department said Monday that Senior Agent Michael Marques cited 34-year-old Rufino Gonzalez-Ibarra for taking and possessing over the legal limit of black drum and possessing undersized black drum and red drum.

Marques says Jan. 31 he found Gonzalez-Ibarra in possession of 26 black drum and one red drum under the minimum size of 16 inches. The legal limit for black drum is five per person per day, making him four times over the legal limit.

Possessing over the legal limit of black drum and possessing undersized black drum and red drum each brings a $100 to $350 fine and up to 60 days in jail for each offense.
