Minnesota Couple Caught With 253 Crappie Over Their Limit

A hotline tip resulted in charges for a crappie-poaching couple.

When the possession limit for crappie in the state of Minnesota is 10, and you're caught with close to 300 fish, it's time for the courts to hand out some serious punishment.

Authorities busted Isouvahn Xayachack and his wife Chanhthone Phongsim for poaching on Fairmont's Lake Sisseton in August of 2018.

If found guilty, the poaching pair could face fines and orders of restitution upward of $3,000.

An anonymous tip came through the "Turn in Poachers" hotline, resulting in the charges against the southern Minnesota couple for being in possession of 253 crappie over their allowed limit.
