    Investigators want to figure out who is behind the death of 53 walleyes, whose fileted carcasses were found in a green Coleman cooler left along the side of the road in Muskegon County.

    The Michigan Department of Natural Resources posted details of the case Thursday on its Facebook page.

    According to the agency, the cooler was found on April 8 near the corner of River Road and Holton-Duck Lake Road in Cedar Creek Township. The fish appeared to have been caught April 4-5.

    According to the DNR, a licensed angler can legally capture five 15-inch walleye daily.

    The case is at least the second big walleye caper the agency has handled in the last month.

    In March, twin brothers from Kent County lost their fishing license and netted a hefty fine after pleading guilty to poaching 65 walleye from the Detroit River.

    They pleaded guilty in 27th District Court in Wyandotte, and each man was ordered to pay $2,070, including $700 in reimbursement for fishing over the limit and $29 in conservation fees. Reimbursements are based on the weight of each individual fish, assessed at $10 a pound.

    In addition, their fishing licenses were revoked for a year.

    The agency is seeking tips on anyone who has recently come into a large amount of walleye, uses a plastic bag to line their fishing cooler or if you have any other information that may help identify the poacher(s).

    Call or text the agency's poaching hotline at 1-800-292-7800. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could qualify for a reward if the information leads to an arrest or conviction.

    Yes, I saw that.

    Last year I saw a boat come in to Catabwa launch. Just seemed odd. Soon a van pulled up and they took a cooler out to the dock, soon unloading of a cooler from the boat took place. They knew I was watching them, but I have no authority to hit them up.. But I knew what they were doing.. Wisconsin plates on the Van. The boat took off heading back East for another load I'd say.. Bunch of crap..

    The truly sad thing (besides thee obvious abuse of a privilege WE all cherish and respect) is that they havent lost ANYTHING! If anyone of us is shortsighted enough to think these idiots wont be right back out there again
    youre kidding yourselves! They just saved them a licensing fee for next year.
    Im an out of stater fishing Ohio Erie water and the Detroit River......Ohio hits me for another $11 this year.......no problem...... if I can't afford it I got no business making a trip to Lake Erie to go fishing. Id gladly give you another $5 to promote better enforcement coverage.
    Just don't waste my $5 with a slap on the wrist for the offender please!
