UNDATED (WHTC) - A 41-year-old Hamilton man facing misdemeanor charges for operating an alleged illegal charter boat fishing operation out of Saugatuck was arraigned yesterday. Greg Mariuz will have his case heard before a jury. State DNR officials brought charges involving licensing and handling caught fish after conducting five undercover probes of Profishient Charters earlier this summer. Mariuz could face a year in jail and over a thousand dollars in fines if convicted. DNR officials are using the case to increase awareness about violations, and are asking the public to report any hunting or fishing violation to the Report All Poaching Hotline at 800-292-7800.
