I have been reading all the comments on the recently held FLW Tournament where the winner was fishing without a valid liscense. I decided to call a friend of mine who was a state of Alabama game warden for 30 years. Here is what he told me.
I explained to him what had happened and he told me that when they catch someone fishing without a liscense they write them a ticket but they DO NOT take their fish or make them release them. They also do not make them quit fishing. Their ticket that they received is their liscense for the remainder of that day. They do however confiscate or make them release them if they are too short or have over the limit.
I feel like the man made an honest mistake. After all he did have a liscense that was out of date. Besides a ticket will cost him much more than a non-resident liscense would have cost him.
