Information about Saltwater Fishing Records

Rules and Regulations

All states will have their own set of rules and regulations that you will need to follow if you want to be acknowledged by that state for holding a record. These rules may be a little different from state to state so it is recommended that you check the rules for your particular state if you are interested in breaking one of these records.

Below are a few of the more basic rules you will most likely have in any state you attempt to break someone else’s fishing record.

* All of the state and federal laws must be obeyed at all times during the process of catching the fish.
* Any fish that the state is considering putting on the records must be caught by only using the conventional rod and reel methods or they will not be accepted.
* The record fish must be reeled in by only one person alone.
* The fish you catch will need to be weighed on “state certified scales” before it will be accepted.

As stated above these are just a few of the rules and regulations that must be met in order for you to break a state fishing record. Make sure you take time to learn all the rest. This way you will not run into any problems later when that special day arrives and you are reeling in that big one that will take center stage for awhile.
