Posted on 02/15/2015

A Virginia Marine Police sting early Saturday morning netted two men accused of poaching hundreds, or possibly thousands, of protected fish (red drum and speckled trout) from a Hampton Roads waterway.
 
Virginia Marine police have had numerous complaints about poaching in the southern branch of the Elizabeth River over the last two weeks, according to Marine Police Officer Bill Thompson. On Friday, the marine police were notified of some suspicious activity in an area known as The Cove on the Elizabeth River, so they set up a sting operation on Friday.

 Early Scale Certification Available
Posted on 01/19/2015

VAC Weighmasters Ryan Noland and Larry Allen want to reduce the number of scales they have to certify at the February Membership Meeting.  They are willing to do special certifications for multiple scales early.

If you and a couple of fellow Anglers can gather your scales together and come up with a group of scales for early certification, then please contact Ryan.  Ryan will work with you to set up a convenient place and time for your early certifications.  

Please remember to be sure your scales are in working order and the barrels are oil free so the certification stickers will adhere.

Andrew Campbell won the 17 day-long December Striper Tournament with a 12-6 striper on 8 # fly as a points entry worth 206 points. Andrew spent four skunk-accompanied days in the lower bay looking for stripers.  Finally, he got word that the fish were further up in the bay and that is where he caught his winning entry.
