The Department of Conservation is planning to investigate the allegations that Senate hopeful Jim Talent has been fishing without a license.
A spokesman for the Department of Conservation says Talent's case will be investigated like any other case.
The maximum penalty for fishing without a license is $1,000 fine or up to one year in jail.
Mike Kelley, the director of the State Democratic Party, says this violation is a part of a series of laws Talent continues to break.
Talent spokesman Rich Chrismer says Talent plans to aquire a fishing license at the next opportunity.
