I found some nets today in the New River that were left there and I thought I read somewhere earlier that a net couldn't be left unattended?

Am I way off base or am I right?

Thanks

Recently I've seen nets in VA Creek. They were flounder nets and I did a small amount of inquiry and searching. From what I gathered, they can be left natter dedicated so long as they are set no earlier than one hour before sunset and removed no later than an hour after sunrise. These were flounder nets which have to be no smaller than 5" stretched size. Corrections welcomed.
I believe there is no nets setting on Sunday and local waters need to be checked for specific regulations. All nets need to be marked with tags or have bobs marked and each end should have a bob (large flat-out the small ones that run the length at the top). If nets are unmarked they are not legal.
All of the above is just what I've been able to determine and needs verification.

BTW I think Alabama also allows inshore netting???

I called the game warden this morning and it sounds like the nets I saw were legal. However, there has been someone putting some in that are not and US. Fish and Wildlife is all over it.

Anyway back on subject. There has been a guy putting a net all the way across the channel, of the marina where I live. I do think that's illegal, but not sure. He puts it in right at dark.

There was nothing in the last thread lockdownable eeeeeeither! Check out "the term is sportsman" thread.

Ok, I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers. It is a very family friendly community, in fact my 10yo asked if he could sign up the other day. I told him I'd check to see if there is any age restriction and if not, sure. That's because I know NCA is as clean as one could ask.

My comment earlier was based on the locked down thread that didn't even get close to heated (IMVHO). Just letting the guys here know not to let this one get there. That's all.

Meaning that this would not be a potential violation for federal enforcement and/or investigation right???
Not saying the feds don't care to enforce it's just not withing their jurisdiction I am assuming right?
At least that's how I read the post.
Meaning the poster said the US Fish and Wildlife was all over it. That is an incorrect statement. Possibly NC Wildlife or NC Marine Fisheries but not US Fish and Wildlife.

phil, kids that register under the age of 13 are required to have a parent or guardian FAX a COPPA registration form to us that basically says the parent/guardian gives permission for them to participate on the forums. If your 10 year old registers an account and enters their birth date in the registration (required) then they will receive the message with a link where they can download the COPPA form to fill out and have signed. There is also a FAX number listed to send it to us. Once we receive it we will move the new registration out of moderation. Thanks!
