Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement brokers cited a Prairieville guy for an alleged Wildlife Management Area (WMA) violation in St. Bernard Parish on April 6.
Agents cited Andrew Messenger, 29, for violating the laws at the Biloxi WMA by way of running a vessel with “surface drive” motors as its type of propulsion.
Agents had been on patrol at the Biloxi WMA after they seen Messenger in a pipeline canal close to the southwest department of Bayou Biloxi running a vessel being propelled by way of 3 “surface drive” motors and actively bowfishing.
On the Biloxi WMA dust boats or air-cooled propulsion vessels can simplest be powered by way of instantly shaft “long tail” air-cooled dust motors which might be 25 general horsepower or much less at the WMA. All different forms of airboats, dust boats or air-cooled propulsion vessels (together with “surface drive boats”) are prohibited.
Violating the laws on a WMA carries as much as a $350 high quality. Participating brokers within the case are Sgt. Jason Gernados and Corporal Thomas Forehand.
