When did you have to get a fishing license for Ocean Fishing? when I grew up in California in the 50'S we could stand on the beach and fish in the Pacific Ocean.

I knew that some states (Virginia included) required salt water fishing licenses, but I thought they were for in closer to shore. Big Rock is still investigating.

it seems a lie detector test maybe slightly subjective with 900,000 dollars on the line?

I WOULD SAY BECAUSE OF SUCH A SMALL VIOLATION, THE PRIZE SHOULD GO FOR THIS FISH.

Good call. Give them the prize money and then deduct the penalty from it. I think a license is $35, but it's splitting hairs on this one.

My question would be to the planners, then they registered why was the crew not checked then.
I was there two weeks ago off shore and the State Men came by and checked my license and my 17 year old sons that I had gotten the night before.
