N.C. saltwater anglers wonít be able to purchase the new recreational saltwater fishing license until Jan. 1, 2007.
The CRFL will be mandatory for most people who fish in N.C.-managed saltwater (with special exemptions), starting Jan. 1, 2007.
However, later governmental developments and computer problems made the WRCís May information about Dec. 1, 2006, CRFL purchases incorrect. CRFLs will go on sale Jan. 1, 2007, the day the law becomes effective, according to a WRC official.
Bob Curry, the WRCís director of Inland Fisheries, said a General Assembly-passed law, the Mandatory Vessel Titling Act that also goes into effect Jan. 1, 2007, was tied to the CRFL so the saltwater license canít be sold earlier than that date. Curry also said the WRCís computer-licensing program software would have had to be reconfigured to enable it to handle three kinds of licenses at once, which couldnít be done by Dec. 1, 2006.
ďAt the last directors meeting it was agreed to delay (adding the CRFL) to ALVIN (Automated License and Vessel Information Network) until Jan. 1, 2007, so all (three) can be running off the same page,Ē Curry said.
