Two Davenport men were charged by the Iowa DNR for having 332 fish in excess of their limit. The DNR says Jeremy Nguyen and Chi Hue Tran were fishing the Mississippi in downtown Davenport on May 17th.

An informant says the men would catch white bass, then regularly take their catch to their vehicle and return to fishing. After conferring with the Scott County Attorney’s Office, a DNR officer is charging the men with three counts each of being over possession of white bass and assessing them each a civil penalty of $2,500 for being 50 fish over their limit.
