So both Florida and NC now require saltwater fishing licenses. I've never fished in NC, maybe one day, but I've fished in Florida many times. As I recall, in Florida you don't need a saltwater fishing license IF:
-you are fishing from shore, or something that's connected to the shore.
-you are on a charter and the charter has the license.
-you are either under 16 or over 65

I don't think there is a waiver for people fishing for substanance. However, most of those people probably would be fishing from shore and therefore not require a license anyway.

I did hear that no fishing license is required in NC if you fish on the 4th of July.

In NC do shore fishermen need licenses? My guess is yes.

That's good info Jim. I didn't realize that in Florida only residents can fish from shore without a license. I hope CC knows that.

With all the different states now requiring saltwater licenses and the varied regulations from state to state, it really pays to do your homework.

Doh!! I don't know if I can handle this. ;) Change is so unbearable. Please, please let me give more money to the government. I can't help myself. ;) They're so much better at wasting it than I am.

I never got to buy a saltwater fishing liscense when I was a kid, even though they sold so many of them in Missouri. What? Huh? ;)

i said this last year when this subject came up. exactly what is going to happen. asfmc just posted the summer flounder regs will be up to individual states to either change or keep them the same as last season. the ball is in thier court with this reg and now would be the time to step up before congress gets it's paws on us. and none of this bs about your rights! this is a long time coming and the right thing is ny state to own it;s own, and the only reason why it isn't yet is that the commercial fishery on the east coast will suffer from red tape and less lenient watchdogs and compliance with certain regs and changes in policy. texas went to the state licence and the rectreational fishery thrives as they chased the comm's out of the inshore gulf. i don;t like any licence one bit but the state would benefit as funds (have to be) used for the purpose it was collected for. the feds can do with it what they please. it is law.

Zim
It makes sense if the funds are dedicated but so far that has not been the case nor do the current congressional bills have that language.

no jim, there is no language you and i can decipher correctly. the point really is that either the feds get the licence money or the state does. the LAW in NY anyway, from what i gathered, is that any funds from a licence for example have to be put into a pot for the delving out monies for whatever the bill has designed it for. i see what rog says makes sense that funding may or would get cut for some of these and that is a catch 22. damned if we do or damned if we don;t. i would venture an argument would arise for the feds to get it as ny would not want the responsibility if it had to forfeit guaranteed funding from capitol hill. one way or another this could get real messy

North Carolinas licence will be dedicated funds. It goes into affect next January.
FAQ

How will the CRFL money be spent?
It will go into two marine resource funds and be distributed through the Marine Fisheries and Wildlife Resources commissions. It must be used to manage, protect, restore, develop, cultivate, conserve and/or enhance North Carolina?s marine resources.

Why do I have to participate in the DMF?s biological data sampling and survey programs?
The purpose of the CRFL is to gather better data about North Carolina?s coastal recreational fishing activity so the DMF can manage fish stocks more effectively. Fisheries managers need to have better estimates on how many people are recreationally fishing and how many and what types of fish they are catching. Sampling and surveys help provide this information.

that is how it was written up and voted on by people who are voted into these jobs and certainly not by the public. there ought to be an addendum drawn up to put before the state and federal level meetings regarding changes in fisheries management and at noaa and asmfc that will give the public the right to choose candidates for these positions instead of a lobbyist of some sort plugging his boy or girl for the job. there is always strength in numbers and if it were brought out in the open enough it could be done

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control
(DNREC) is moving quickly to establish a saltwater fishing license for
recreational anglers who fish Delaware marine waters. Specifically, the
license would be an ?all waters license", meaning that the license would
be valid for both fresh and saltwater fishing. Very few details of the
proposal are known at this time besides that DNREC is considering a range
of fees from $5 to $8.50 per year for residents and $15 to $20 per year
for non-residents. In order for a license to be instituted, a bill would
have to be passed by the Delaware legislature and signed into law by the
Governor.

Default Re: Salt Water Licenses!......bet you change your tune

This fossilized but relevant thread provides a time capsule overview.
There are some great ideas and interesting information, debate and positions that still remain relevant today. The Reauthorization of the Magnusun Stevenson act which posits, as we all know by this writing, a requirement to establish a national registry that was included in the statute approved by Congress in 2007.
The final rule requires anglers and spearfishers who fish recreationally in federal ocean waters to be included in the national saltwater angler registry by Jan. 1, 2010.
Beginning January 2010, NOAA will exempt anglers from the federal registration rule if they are licensed in states that have a system to provide complete information on their saltwater anglers to the national registry.
It was 09 but the states have been granted 1 year to decide whether they will collect the data via licensing or If anglers are not licensed or registered by a state that has been exempted and want to fish in federal waters, they will be required to register with NOAA. They also must register if they fish in tidal waters for migratory fish such as striped bass and salmon that spawn in rivers and spend their adult lives in estuaries and oceans. However, those who fish recreationally for these migratory species inland of tidal waters need not register, according to the final rule.

The latest on this issue.
