SIDNEY, Iowa (AP) - Five southwest Iowa men have been charged and assigned to pay thousands in fines after being accused of illegally fishing in the Missouri River.

Officers with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission say they saw the men loading channel catfish onto a truck in Fremont County on Jan. 19. Officials say the men illegally used nets to catch the fish.

Eighteen-year-old Larkin Achenbach of Pacific Junction, 50-year-old Lyle Achenbach of Riverton, and 57-year-old Lester Achenbach, 54-year-old Leland Achenbach and 79-year-old James Achenbach, all of Thurman, were each charged with 18 counts of illegal fishing, as well as other counts. Fines for each range from $3,510 to nearly $3,900.

A court date for all five has been set for Feb. 18.
