I think he needs a licence.Had a guy tell me his boat is registered in NC, he is a VA resident and he said he doesnt think he needs a NC fishing license if fishing the ocean in NC in his boat, only needs a license fishing from shore. I think he is mistake, anybody know ??
Yep , thats what i thought. He thinks because its registered in NC hes covered. Hope he reads this before he goes again.The only way that he does not need a license is if he starts and ends the trip out of a VA port. Fishes outside of the 3 mile line off of NC and never enters NC waters with lines in the water or fish in the box.
