4 fishermen accused of catching 420 white bass

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Four Nashville fishermen were cited for going well over the state fishing limits when they caught 420 white bass in what wildlife officials are calling one of the biggest fish poaching cases in the state.

According to The Tennessean, Phay Souksavong, Khamnovan Keomanychanh, Kongham Phenevongsa and So Akhom were fishing on March 20 below the dam on Cheatham Lake when Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officer Brad Bagwell confronted them.

The limit on white bass per day per licensed fisherman is 15, but they had 360 more white bass than they were legally allowed.

TWRA spokesman Doug Markham said the fines could amount to thousands of dollars. He said it appeared the four men found an area where the white bass were schooled heavily and getting ready to spawn.
