    I wonder if the mate can swim with a couple hundred pounds of rocks tied around his feet

    Moral of the story - double check the paperwork at sea and throw the guy without a license off the boat when nobody's looking.

    The title of that article is BS!

    The angler didn't loose anything. He may not have won it but since it wasn't his in the first place he couldn't loose what he never had before. Make sense?
    Businesses report lost revenue all the time BUT It money that they "thought" hat they should have made not real money thus no real losses.
    In my small business I made $xxx this year.(and am happy with that) BUT if I report that I lost $xxxxx
    it simply is money that I suspect that I should have made. Thus not a loss.

    This fisherman got a wonderful fish that is his gain.

    I see the principal lesson though, better to do things according to the book, than to cut corners, and end up damaging your reputation and costing your client a truck load of loot!!!!

    Africa is full of such stories as well.
