$5 for residents
$15 for non residents
$2 agent fee
no charge if you hold a freshwater license


reciprocity
A person that possesses a valid New Hampshire saltwater recreational fishing license may engage in recreational saltwater fishing from Maine's southern border to Cape Neddick, without registering with ME DMR

When I got my freshwater license last year (which was $22) there was a sign that stated next year there would be an additional $5 fee for the salt water license in 2011 for Maine residents. I was led to believe by the way it was worded that you had the choice and there would be an additional stamp or a different box checked off if you chose to get the saltwater license in addition to the fresh water. When I got my freshwater license this year it was $27 for Maine residents, flat rate, no questions, no stamps no additional boxes checked off or any of that. The woman at Cabela's (who sounded like she was from the deep south) swore up and down that the licenses were the same price as last year, but I know what I paid last season and didn't feel like getting into yet another long, drawn out conversation in that store as I find most don't know their ass from their elbow (in my experience anyway). So was this $5 just tacked on to the license and it is understood that it was for both fresh and salt? I made sure to ask and was told that I am covered for both, maybe I misunderstood what I read last year?? Either way I am covered so I guess that's all that matters. Just thought I'd throw my .2 cents worth in......tight lines guys!!!!

What I interpret from this is that if you purchased the freshwater license as a resident each year you are automatically registered with the Saltwater registry. It is only those who hold a lifetime license that must register yearly for a fee of $1 or $2. And yes it was $22 - last year with a $5 increase in lieu of the stamp.

So everyone who buys a freshwater fishing license gets their saltwater license (for free) LOL. What a scam.

Well, at least I'll be using my alot this year. Just secured a slip at Marstons. Yippie!

Default Good News!

The law in Maine has been re-written.

There is no extra endorsement required for stripers and Maine now has reciprocity for other US states that issue saltwater recreational fishing licenses.

See: https://www5.informe.org/cgi-bin/onl...wf/faq.pl#F533

as well as: https://www5.informe.org/cgi-bin/onl...r/swf/index.pl

By my reading, the most it's going to cost you is a couple bucks to register online if you don't hold a license in another state. The only problem is that as of today 6/14/11 the online registration page is offline. You can read that right on the page that says it's offline.
