Last case I was aware of, and it truly was an egregious case (48 bugs out of season, undersized...) was $500 for the violation, and $500 for each count along with confiscation of boat, truck and dive gear. However it worked out, I believe the fine was about $25K, plus the gear.

Pretty expensive lobster dinner - I believe it works out to about $500 per pound (not counting the gear) plus you don't get to eat the bugs!!

Gauging UW REALLY isn't that hard.

Stay wet, or maybe not...
