Jefferson Parish men caught with 62 red drum

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents have cited three men for alleged fishing violations in Lafitte area.

Agents cited Rickie Thomas of Westwego, Leon Firven and Willie Langford, both of Avondale, for taking or possessing over the limit of red drum and possessing undersized red drum. Additionally Firven was cited for angling without basic and saltwater licenses.

Wildlife spokesman Adam Einck says agents received a complaint about people catching over the limit of red drum in The Pen, which is a body of water east of Lafitte. He says agents stopped the men in their vessel earlier this month as they were leaving the complaint area returning to the launch.
