I read that whole story. Ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law. He should have his license taken away permanently, boat and equipment seized, and fines

The buyer market should be held accountable too. If they can certify bait then they can certify wild caught striped bass.
Get caught with a freekin uncertified baitfish and they would crucify you and I.
With his political clout it means it will go away with a "be more discreet" - wink - wink.
