John Wilson is on felony probation and convicted of numerous crimes against society and the environment. He poached, he stole, and he misrepresented sales of our marine resource to the public. I am shocked that The Indy would even give this lowlife a forum to claim his crimes are commonplace in our local fishing industry. He said that such activity is common among fishermen! Are you kidding me! These are proclamations from a guy who is being led off to jail.
I have been a commercial fisherman for 45 years and was shocked to read such an absurd statement. John Wilson’s crimes are his responsibility, and ignorantly claiming that his selfish actions are commonplace in the fishing industry illustrates just how disaffected he is from the industry. About time the California Department of Fish and Wildlife caught him!
