A drunk man was arrested for catching over 100 fish.

The unidentified fishing enthusiast was spotted by Environmental Police in Massachusetts hauling large quantities of sea bass onto his boat while heavily intoxicated.

According to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, the man was fishing on a stretch of Boston canal that limits the maximum number of sea bass caught to eight per boat in a bid to reduce overfishing.

It is believed he had around 122 of the species aboard when the police pulled up to his recreational fishing boat and smelled alcohol on his breath.

After failing a sobriety test he was arrested and ordered to give all the fish to charity.
