A buddy told me that the DNR "strong armed" him into telling them how much ballast he had. The DNR asked how much he had and my buddy said he wasn't sure. Then the DNR said something like, you can tell me, or I can confiscate the boat and take it in to be weighed right now. It is pretty obvious when the boat is squatting low in the water that it is over the limit. My buddy got a warning, but he said that if caught again he would be fined.
