Carolina Redfish Guide Captain Gordon Churchill came across this disgusting example of bad sportsmanship while on a recent redfish trip near Morehead City, North Carolina. The saddest part of the whole story is that the owner of the gill net was cited and given the maximum fine. A whopping $35 plus court costs of $110. I'm not sure which is the bigger crime, the untended net that took out a dozen nice reds or the pitiful fine.
