Two Louisiana men have been arrested by wildlife agents for allegedly shocking fish on the Bouef River.
Authorities said Tyler Gilmore, 22, of Fort Necessity, and Derek Guillot, 30, of Winnsboro, were cited July 2 for taking fish using illegal methods after they were found with a shocking device.
Wildlife and Fisheries Sgt. Albert Tarver said Guillot and Gilmore were found in Boeuf River with 13 catfish believed taken with the device.
Tarver said Guillot threw the device into the river when wildlife agents approached. He also was charged with obstruction of justice.
The men face a possible $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail on the fishing charges. Obstruction of justice carries a possible $10,000 fine and up to five years in jail.
