BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota game wardens issued a record number of citations during the paddlefish snagging season last month.

The Game and Fish Department says wardens issued 177 citations, up from 82 a year ago.

Enforcement Chief Robert Timian says only 11 of this year's citations were directly related to paddlefishing. The most prevalent violation was fishing without a license. Littering was another common infraction.
