Here's what the rules say about state record fish. Bottom line is that it's your fish to keep altough they may ask you if they can borrow the fish to make a mold of it. This happened for the last few state records that were broken.

"The Virginia Saltwater Fishing Tournament (VSWFT) maintains the official records for saltwater game fish in Virginia. Records are determined by weight in pounds and ounces, and ties will be recognized and accorded record status. Special “State Record” citation plaques are awarded for catches exceeding or tying existing state records, provided the catches comply with all state record standards, proper registration procedures are followed, and the fish is certified by the VSWFT director as a state record. It is the sole responsibility of the angler to ensure all state record rules and procedures are followed.
State record entries must conform to all of the rules of the VSWFT as listed on pages 2-4 of the brochure. In addition, the following conditions must be met:

1) State record entries must be made on the special, two-page state record application forms and all information requested on the form must be supplied.

2) The actual fish must be viewed by the VSWFT director, or a member of the VSWFT committee, or it will not be eligible for state record recognition. The VSWFT office and director should be contacted as soon as possible, and the fish must be preserved (unfrozen) for viewing.

3) Two side-view photographs of the fish must be submitted with the application; photographs become the property of the VSWFT and may be used for publicity or publication.

4) The actual tackle (rod, reel, terminal tackle) used to catch the fish must be available for inspection by the weighmaster and VSWFT director.

5) In addition to the boundary requirements listed in Rule 2 of this brochure, state record catches must be made in waters regularly and commonly fished by boats leaving from and returning to Virginia ports. Current boundary limits are waters north of a line connecting Cape Point, Hatteras, NC with Diamond Shoals Tower and south of latitude line 38o 15' south of Ocean City, MD"

Yep... 40 lbs. is what it takes, they are rather plentifull here in the Winter. Here's a pic of me and a nice one that went 48 lbs. 7 oz.. I did catch it in a boat but it was only a 14 ft. jon boat.
