Better get your fishing license

One very sad fisherman in North Carolina is wishing he had purchased his fishing license last week, before entering the State’s big Blue Marlin contest. 

One forgetful Peter Wann of Alexandria Virginia was fishing aboard the Citation during the annual Big Rock Blue Marlin tournament when a boat-mate landed a record 883 pound Marlin.

The behemoth marlin broke a tournament record set in 2000.

The $900,000 prize money was as good as in the bank, until official’s discovered Wann had not purchased the required State fishing license before entering the tournament. 

Doohh!!!

The tournament board had not choice but to declare the runner-up boat the winner with its 528.3pound blue marlin. 

I wonder if this guy will be asked to go fishing again.
