Well Clyde said

That he heard from another board that Va rules state that if you leave out of a Va port,catch the fish,don't go to another port inbetween,it's a Va fish?? Sounds kinda like a "bogus rule" to me,if you catch the fish in NC waters,should be a NC fish.. Don't really matter as someone said earlier,it just leaves the 60 lb record here in NC as a "sittin duck"... :D

Is it me or what's up with that fish's mouth?

It's in the same positionas the lady is holding it on the boat and in the pic, where VA announces it as a new state record.

It's been said a hundred times on every fishing forum out there, the fish in question was caught within the guidelines of the Va. state tournament. Same thing as going 50 mis. offshore to get a Tuna, Tog or Mahi, not "state" waters but still within the guidelines used by everyone. Let it go, please! :rolleyes:

No Tiny, no personal attachment to either angler or fish (even though I would of loved to have been the one on the other end of that rod!), just get tired of that same topic with all of it's negative innuendoes attached being brought up over and over. Kinda like kicking a dog turd, it smells every time, just a little less each time, but it still stinks.;) :D

Fellas,

Here is the "skinny" I received from Mr. Bain (Va Marine Resources Commission) when I questioned him about this scenario: "Virtually all states which have borders with other states and share contiguous waters make provisions for these situations; Virginia is similar to many states in that it will recognize fish caught on a boat which leaves from and returns to a Virginia port without landing in another jurisdiction; in addition, Virginia has an additional requirement not required by in many other states: requiring the fish be caught "in waters regularly and commonly fished" by boats leaving from and returning to Virginia ports. That means we will not recognize a fish taken in areas which are not a part of the usual fishing pattern of Virginia boats. CMB" So let it be written... So let it be done. Fish On!

Since this thread is still going.. :rolleyes: I'll put in some more of my 2penny's worth.. By saying that it should be a NC state record was not in any way shape or form "demeaning" the catch. The lady that caught that has my congrats and I'm sure the congrats of many others that envy catching such a fish.. Also,the fish would have been an NC record had the "rolls" been reversed.....In no way is anyone saying the catch is illegal,or implying any other conotations that would belittle that fish or her.. As was reportedly done to the gentleman that caught the world record striper.. It's a "VA-NC thing" so get over it.. :D
After having seen where in a Va port and fishing in NC waters,and entering back in the same Va port you can get a state record,I'm more than satisfied that it is a Va state record! As far as "normal Va fishing paterns for Va boats",I would consider NC ,when looking for stripers,to be a normal fishing patern for a Va boat at that time of yr if they wanted to catch a fish.. ;)
