While on foot patrol in Dr. Julian Bruce St. George Island State Park during the week of July 22 to 28, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissioner Officer Miller observed a group of fishermen walking back to their vehicle carrying a stringer of spotted seatrout.

Miller stopped the men to perform a resource inspection. Upon inspection of the catch, the men were found to be in possession of 15 spotted seatrout, 14 of which were undersized. The men stated they had all been fishing together and all of their fish were on the one stringer. Citations were issued to the individuals for the violation.

Officers Nelson, Robb and Miller were working complaints of shark finning in St. George Island State Park, and while Nelson and Robb were on foot patrol, they observed an individual catch a shark and remove its head and tail.

Robb called on Miller to check the individual and upon inspection, Miller observed the individual was in possession of three cut-up sections of shark, one undersized red drum, one undersized spotted seatrout and one undersized flounder. Citations were issued to the individual for the violations.
