Poachers thought no one would be monitoring the Federal Vessel Monitoring System during shutdown!

A pair of Florida men face two misdemeanor fishing charges for reportedly fishing within Dry Tortugas National Park on Tuesday — a day the federal government was still shut down. Jailed were James Mooneyham, 48, of Madiera Beach, and James Redden, 43, of Cape Coral. The FWC says one of the reasons for the poaching venture is that the pair thought no one would be monitoring the Federal Vessel Monitoring System due to the government shutdown.
