Fish for free without a license this weekend – vagazette.com

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.
