Each warden shall keep a daily record of his official acts, and at the close of each month make a summary of the record with such statements in detail as shall be necessary for the information of the board, and report the same to it. The protector shall report to the board any negligence or dereliction of duty or incompetency on the part of any of the wardens, with the facts relating thereto, shall report monthly to the board the operation of his department during the preceding month, and make any further report the board requires. Every warden shall seize, remove and forthwith destroy any net, pound or other device for taking fish found in or upon any of the waters of this state, or upon the shores or islands of those waters where fishing with nets is prohibited or illegal. Such nets, pounds or other devices are declared to be a public nuisance, and may be abated and summarily destroyed by any warden. No action for damages shall lie or be maintained against a warden for the seizure or destruction.
