Rob Scott says he may have caught a world-record trout while ice fishing on the Ontario side of Lac La Croix. The fish unofficially weighed in at 52 pounds, 3 ounces. But Scott will never be able to submit it for a record. When he brought it home to Minnesota, the Department of Natural Resources seized it on behalf of Ontario officials. Scott had already caught his limit, and that fish put him one over. He paid a $400 fine plus about $75 in court costs. Officials still have the fish.

Sex offender registries are cruel and unjust.
That's a bad thing, even—or especially—from a libertarian perspective.
