Fishing License

O.k.
I've searched this forum and others.
Can not find an answer to this question.
For those traveling full time along the east coast,
Maine to Florida including the keys.
What do you do about fishing licenses?
Buy 'em all, don't fish, Stay on the down low, Don't ask? What?

Thanks

Search NOAA (National registry required).

Search each state by typing "fishing permit."

Not hard, really.

Yes, some of the states do require saltwater permits, and some of the fines are hefty. Generally, though, you can plead stupid off-shore. But don't try the "stupid" ploy in any of the bays.

Per the NOAA Site; "Fishing in nearshore waters (0-3 miles) is governed by state regulations, except in Florida and Texas where the state controls fishing out to 9 miles. Fishing outside of state waters and for highly migratory species is set by the Regional Fishery Management Councils and by NOAA."

Look here fore more detail.

I wouldn’t recommend the playing stupid option. That doesn’t go over well with the judges down here in the keys.

You should refrain from fishing within at least 3 miles from shore. If you are going in beyond 3 miles, you better make sure that you do not have any freshly caught fish on board. Also you will need to make sure that you are under any daily bag limits for any fish that you have stored on board. This is just from what I have been reading, but you may want to conduct more research on your own or call your local fish and wildlife department for guidance.

This is one area the feds need to get involved in. It is fairly arbitrary as to the imaginary stae lines. I live in NJ but berth my boat in NY. At any time I may float over the imaginary line from one state to the other thereby needing license in both states? So you are correct in being confused. This salt water license is a nightmare yet to be challenged successfully. As with most ideas government comes up with money plays a much more significant role than common sense or any reality. Salt water licensing if "necessary" should be one of the few areas the Federal government should mandate, not individual states.

You are correct - playing stupid is bad. I was trying to emphasize that the original poster had not made a real search.

The rules are many. For example, on the Chesapeake Bay, you can catch striped bass, but you cannot eat them on a boat, only on shore. They have handed out tickets for that. Go figure.

If there are quota or size limits for any fish that you catch, then you should not filet it out on the water if you are within the distance for state regulations. They only do this so that they can ensure that you are following the rules. For cruisers, it can be difficult since you want to filet it as soon as possible and get it down below.

Oh, I understand the intent and I understand the reason. But for a Chesapeake Bay sailor, we can never leave regulated waters. It's a drag with no simple solution.
