Wildlife Trooper Shaun Kuzakin issues a $170 citation to Daren Ostlie for snagging three coho salmon in front of the DIPAC Macaulay Salmon Hatchery on Friday. The fish were confiscated, as well as his fishing pole with a snagging hook, that was painted pink. Ostlie was cited in September 2010 for snagging two salmon in the same area. "That area is for people that are handicapped that can't get around easily and we don't need guys with weighted hooks snagging there," said Kuzakin. "Everyone is down there playing by the rules and you have a couple of people that aren't and it is not fair to everyone else."
