KEY LARGO, Fla. - Four men were arrested and charged after FWC officers found them with bags of undersized fish.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officers say it happened in the Angelfish Creek area of Key Largo.

FWC says the officers were on water patrol when they saw four men on a commercial lobster boat acting suspiciously. 

The men dropped a bag overboard. 

When officers stopped the boat, they found a bag of 14 wrung lobster tails including four that were undersized. 

There was another back with 38 undersized mangrove snapper, five undersized yellowtail snapper and one undersized red grouper.

The men were charged and arrested.
