NANFA-- an article regarding the bait dealer

This article seems to cover all the aspects of both sides.

The part that disturbs me is the confiscation of this guys truck.
Confiscation is just wrong, barring severe crimes. I mean, you obviously
take away someones weapon of choice if they are murdering people with it.

Maybe not in this case, but in most, take away the truck or other equipment-
how do they expect people to pay their fines?

For anyone who thinks this is off topic, I say it could happen to you
bringing home your new fish from the convention or whatever. It seems in
these matters that since there are not laws governing what most NANFA
members do in these regards, they just adapt whatever laws seem to fit. Like
how Illinois decides darters are perch, and you can take them home for your
aquarium if you catch them by legal methods for fishing perch.
