Talking to the local agents a few years back, they said if they issued a $180 fine, TWRA would get $12 out of it if the judge found them guilty.
Seems as if most judges are pretty lenient towards TROUT regulations, heck, if you go into any court room anymore, they're to lenient. That can lead to a whole other discussion though.
