Default Homestead man arrested - undersized & over bag limit

A Homestead man was found with 65 gray snapper on board his boat Monday night,
which is 45 over the legal limit given there were four people on his vessel, according to police.

Heribel Cruz-Casanola, 44, was arrested on charges of possessing undersized gray snapper and possessing fish over the bag limit.
A U.S. Coast Guard boat stopped Cruz-Casanola's vessel at Gilbert's Resort and Marina at mile marker 108, and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Noel Garcia arrived at 11 p.m.

On board Cruz-Casanola's boat was another adult man,
Jorge Ariel Martinez Hernandez, 49, of Lutz, Florida, and two teenage boys.
Inside a cooler on the boat were 65 mangrove snapper, and two barracuda, according to Garcia's report.
Hernandez was arrested on two counts of possessing undersized fish.

In state waters, the bag limit for gray snapper is five per person.
Three of the snapper were under the size limit of 10 inches.
One barracuda was under the size limit for that species of 15 inches.

I hope the fine is big enough to get someone's attention and they are able to pay it. I am not in favor of spending tax dollars putting this person in jail.

Its not ok. But how many stories of keys violators do we have to see. Before its the same cast of julios doing the same thing day in day out. Stop at any bridge and look a the undersized sun dried snapper in the buckets of the no speakies.

i can say the same thing about a different cast of people in detsin or jax or pensacola doing the same, but they dont get called out here with with the vigor and venom and froth that Julio does. but that's fine, that's more of a reflection on you and yours than anything else. go to the FWC reports and tell me who gets busted in the panhandle or Jax? i am shocked that homestead fisheries violators are spanish speaking people. #comeverga

I don't think that the Cay Sal group deserved leniency, and I don't think these guys do either. Fines should be steep. Equipment and any vehicles used should be confiscated, at least seized and tied up in the legal system. I pay a lot in taxes, if government wants to "waste" money on something, here it is. Should be jail time for flagrant violations. Kid has a 19 1/2 Red Grouper Gulf side, he needs to be educated, and reprimanded. Second or third offense? Make him pay. But 45 over the limit? Jail. And then fines. And minimum 5 year wildlife license ban. Make the consequences rank, and theses scumbags will move on. And in the Keys, they keep building and fixing the old bridge to allow for more fishing. Great. Give these scumbags more room to fish and keep every fish they catch.

lol....because sustenance fishing in Cuba is the same a bridge fishing in the keys.

Most of these comments say more about the posters than they do the poachers.

You can go on IG and see all manner of poaching and bringing back more than allowed and same dudes popping off about “Julio’” are liking and congratulating the poachers.

funny thing is, watch a white guy filet a fish and watch a Cuban or Bahamian filet a fish. One dude throws over 60-70% of the fish’s the, the other 2 use 90% of the fish.
