Federal Registry

Rich,

I heard there was an article in Newsday that states we have to register with the state so that they know who's fishing. I can't find the info on it. Can you elaborate for us.

Thanks

Dom

It was a Newsday article Friday.

(But you must already have a hunting or freshwater license in NY to use the link.)

I am kinda surprised that I didn't hear about it here first. Thats all.

When my neighbor told me about it, I wiped out my phone and said, "hold on let me check with the fishing line."

hahahahaha......I had Jim Giilmore on the radio show back when the license was so called "replealed" and I explained in detail for weeks what was going on...both before that and after Jim's appearance...

you have to remember what comes out in print is a week or two behind what we're talking about on the radio shows every Saturday afternoon at 4 pm on WGBB 1240AM radio and it is streamed live while we are on the air as well..

besides I'm not registering either so who cares

Makes Sense.

I would love to know how they are going to check if people are registered or not on the water.

Also, I am shocked that Mr B's and J&J and J&H didn't say a word about it.

Dom

P.S I wish I could get 1240 in the Bellport area. Sometimes I am on the road or doing something where I can't hook my netbook up to my little Ryobi radio and listen.
