Nebraska angler fined $1,200 for too many walleye.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says 68-year-old James Thomsen of Ashland, Neb., had to pay nearly $1,200 when he was caught with 27 walleyes.

A DNR officer patrolling Lake of the Woods recently began questioning Thomsen about the fishing and discovered was well over the walleye limit.

The Lake of the Woods special daily and possession limit is six walleye or sauger combined, but no more than four walleyes, and not more than one longer than 28 inches.

The DNR says several of the fish in the freezer of his resort cabin were over the size limit.

The DNR says Thomsen pleaded guilty to the violation and paid $1,165 in fines and restitution.
