LDWF Agents Cite Charter Guide for Violations in Plaquemines Parish

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) enforcement agents cited a Montana resident for alleged charter guide violations in Plaquemines Parish on Dec. 15.

Agents cited Daniel Sullivan, 32, of Bozeman, Montana, for failing to comply with charter boat regulations by not having a charter guide license and failing to present a U.S. Coast Guard license.

Agents were on patrol in the Port Sulphur area when they stopped Sullivan with paying customers onboard his vessel. Sullivan did not possess the required U.S. Coast Guard Captains license and LDWF charter boat fishing guide license.

Failing to comply with charter boat regulations carries up to a $950 fine and 120 days in jail for each offense.

Agents participating in the case are Corporal Thomas Forehand, and Senior Agent Shea Schexnaydre. This case will be forwarded to District Attorney Charles Ballay for prosecution.
