DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) -- Five anglers from Wisconsin have been caught with 100 walleye over the state limit at Devils Lake and are each facing fines of more than $1,700.

North Dakota Game and Fish wardens say they got a tip about a group of men who were overfishing and staying in a rental home in Devils Lake.

A warden found 25 whole walleye in one of the fishermen's vehicles. Another 135 cleaned and frozen walleye were found in their rental house.

The daily limit in North Dakota is 10 walleyes per person.

Each angler faces fines of more than $1,700.

The group has a court date set for August 18.
