If your fishing one of the big money tournies don't delete your track log if you think you may be in the money as they will be checking it to make sure you fished legal. Deleted track log usually means disqualification.
ROB, The Mid Atlantic Rockfish Shootout next week uses handheld GPS units that are turned in when you weigh your fish. Track logs can be viewed through a computer gives us a time for any location on th etrack. Very nice stuff!
Gee, I used to go fishing to relax, get outdoors and get away from all the hassles.
Now if you want to participate in the ocean striper fishery, or even fish at all in saltwater (ie the new saltwater registry), you've got to register yourself and prove you are innocent of all the crimes they assume you might be committing. Guilty until you can prove your innocence, I guess. How nice!
Tracks won't save you from a ticket. If you get caught with striper in the EEZ you will get a ticket whether tracks or on, off, saved, deleted, don't matter. And if you are inside 3 miles having tracks from the past showing you in the EEZ that is not proof you caught striper in the EEZ as there are other species to target out there too....fishing in the EEZ is not illegal. I do agree to be sure to use the tools you have to stay inside 3 miles when targeting striper but tracks ain't going to help anyone (unless you are tournament fishing).
