RE: Stracner's DQ at the Sabine – Based on my understanding of the Compact he would be ineligible for getting a fishing license in almost all states since they are all part of it except Hawaii and Massachusetts. His Elite Series season should be over. I would like to know which state revokes your fishing license for one year for fishing without a license. Seems harsh and counter-productive. This could happen very easily like simply not understanding the effective dates of the license (e.g. year-to-date versus all expire at the same time). Every state is different, so very easy to get mixed up.
I believe a fine and making the offender buy a license as part of the fine would be a more reasonable penalty. Reserve the revocation of privileges (hunting or fishing) for more serious or repeat offenders.
