    If you get a OH license you could do it on the Ohio River.

    Yes,,, and no,,,, depends on where you are,, exactly.



    ...West Virginia fishing laws and regulations must be followed when fishing on the Ohio River mainstream and on embayments or tributaries that are within the boundaries of West Virginia .


    Ohio fishing laws and Ohio River fishing regulations for the Eastern Unit, which cover the West Virginia / Ohio border, must be followed while fishing on embayments or tributaries that are within the boundaries of Ohio .


    The embayment and tributary reciprocal boundaries for each state are listed in the Waterfowl Hunting and Fishing on the Ohio River brochure available from West Virginia DNR offices, and online at www.wvdnr.gov. Ohio and West Virginia anglers may travel and fish embayments and tributaries to the landmark locations listed in the brochure. These locations are also defined by distance from the mouth of the tributary and GPS coordinates for convenience. .....

    So if a big blue takes the bait and makes a beeline for West Virginia, does the fish get a ticket?

    LOL! With the piss poor enforcement I have seen up this way, unless you are having a really bad day, I reckon no one, fish or man, will be getting a ticket.:wink:
