Should be the customer, who ever reeled it in the pic, not him then. I understand promoting a business based on putting people on record fish, just too bad it has to be him in the pic. Congrats to the mystery person that caught the fish, it's a monster.
I agree. should be whoever reeled it in. If I take a friend fishing and they catch a big one, then it is theirs, not mine. and they aren't even paying to go fishing. If the person is paying to go fishing it should definetly be theirs
On DB's facebook page, the first pic that comes up is with Robert Campbell (customer) holding HIS fish - and the text says this. So relax everyone, John did give credit to his customer, the pic that was posted here was just the one of John holding the fish. Who would not want their pic taken with the record - esp if it came from your boat and your business is catching fish...
Mr. Sander, how does catching a record aboard a charter work? The crew probably set the rod and perhaps handed it to the customer to reel in. Just wondering how that's viewed here in the State? I believe I've seen at least one State Record White Bass and White Perch come aboard this year, but just tossed them back. Curious in case a future customer wants to seek record status on one of those or any other species should it happen.
I believe the IGFA is far more strict on who touches a rod on a record fish, among other things. Having multiple touches here doesn't seem like it's an issue for a state level record. If a State Record end up being a possible IGFA record, then of course it would have to comply at every level a record was sought I'm sure.
