Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents concluded an extensive investigation into the illegal sale of spotted sea trout and red drum last month. Agents arrested Joseph Morris III, 30, of Marrero, for alleged commercial fishing violations after undercover LDWF Agents purchased spotted sea trout and red drum from Morris’ residence in Jefferson Parish. Agents also secured an arrest warrant from Plaquemines Parish after Morris again sold spotted sea trout and red drum to undercover agents and he also took agents on chartered fishing trips without the required charter boat license.
