Game & Inland Fisheries recognizes trophy freshwater catches through the Virginia Angler Recognition Program. On average, anglers measure more than 6,000 trophy-size fish annually. If you land a big saltwater fish, please consider posting that information to the Virginia Saltwater Fisherman Journal, an online site which has been used by recreational anglers since 2007. The journal is intended to benefit the individual angler, the fishing community and fishery managers. It allows individual anglers to keep a record of their fishing experiences, which can be used to identify successful locations and conditions. Posting saltwater catch information also helps fishery managers assess fish populations. Original post http://www.vagazette.com/news/va-vg-fish-for-free-this-weekend-20140602,0,7217027.story

Making sense of the Magnuson-Stevens Act | Boating Industry

Jeff Angers of the Center for Coastal Conservation

Absolutely. But this nation has done a damn good job making sure the fish stocks in this country are as healthy as theyve ever been, or at least we know where they are and what we need to do to get them back. While he has specific goals in mine, and is working to spread the marine industrys messages, Gabriel added that the current situation with the Magnuson-Stevens Act is nobodys fault, but rather a recognition for how much things have changed since the first version of the Act was passed in 1976. Its never been more accessible to the common man to be able to get off shore and enjoy the natural resources, he said. An entire industry has exploded around this, and so you have a law that was in place that didnt have an industry when it was set. Gabriel said its unclear, at this point, what will actually be passed into law, and that his constituency is OK with changes that dont necessarily benefit recreational anglers in every case. In some instances, were fairly certain were going to go from 51 percent commercial/49 percent recreational to at least 50/50, if not 51 recreational/49 commercial, he said.

Saltwater and freshwater license-free fishing days begin June 7 – Lifestyle – Crestview News Bulletin

With their help, we have accomplished new achievements for the people of Louisiana. One of new legislation awaiting Gov. Jindals signature is a bill that would limit where welfare recipients can use federal money. Under the new law people with Louisiana Purchase Cards (Louisiana EBT) would no longer be allowed to use those funds at lingerie shops, nail salons, tattoo parlors and any business with an age restriction of 18 or snook fishing older. HB 1176 tightens guidelines on state legislation passed in 2013, which banned the use of EBT cards for alcohol, cigarettes and lottery tickets. Another bill, on the governors desk will raise the cost of a saltwater fishing license from $5.50 to $13.
