I agree: any money collected for recreational fishing should be done state by state and NOT FEDERAL! If the federal govt. has any hand in taking a cut from individual state license fees the founding fathers will be rolling in their graves!

Furthermore, that money needs to go back into fishery management and education programs for kids on how to fish, etc. If that money starts going into troubled youth in the inner city or some other shit, I'll be very upset.

Key points

1) Individual state license, and no federal involvement.

2) License fees $$ go towards fishery management.

Hi Guys. Just because I have an opinion on all topics...lol I believe the saltwater fishing licence is a great thing to help protect our fisheries. The problem is that, AGAIN, a bunch of dumb a??es in some office that has never fished before are making all the rules......typical government.

On another note.......hows the fishing? Seeing many stripers? Wind been the major factor? 5 hrs from the coast....don't get to fish nearly enough.
......Cheap Plug..... You can get some free tackle at ajcandytails.com

Making it widely known that fishing for saltwater species is illegal without a license will stop a lot of weekend visitors to your area from bombarding the trees, rocks, docks, jetties and God knows what, with hooks, line, sinkers, lures and all their garbage. That's one positive.

Anyone who truly enjoys getting out and fishing will pay and go anyway. Me included.

What will the affect be on local Bait and Tackle shops? What percentage of their business comes from Googans? I don't know.

Will the money be used to improve access and quality of the environment?
I believe it will in low rent real estate areas. (muddy riverside lots for boat ramps, etc.), but access to prime waterfront on the Cape and Islands will always be "wait 'til they go back to N.Y.C." and walk around the "WE OWN THIS BEACH-KEEP OFF!'" signs.

AS STATED ABOVE- It's up to groups like all of us forum members to rally and demand the money be used for it's intended purpose. Without any opposition, it's gone! WE are the concerned group that should be charged with making sure the right officials are in place to run these programs.

Keep this and other threads like it alive. Gather signatures that demand notice. I hope and believe that there are good people in our interest group, and that this license thing can work out to better our sport.

As of January 20, 2010 - 19 of the 23 Coastal States require licensing.

The ones that don't are.

Maine, New Hampshire and New Jersey are the last three regional states without the license requirements. Alaska is the other.
Hawaii.
Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands also haven't complied.

Is there a plan for New Hampshire to have a state saltwater license, so that registry fees paid by anglers would go the state instead of to the federal government?
A saltwater license was approved this year by the NH State Legislature and signed by the Governor. The license will go into effect January 1, 2011, and will cost $15 for residents and non-residents.

As others have said, I have no problem paying a license fee to my state for fishing in saltwater . I already pay for a freshwater license . I just hope that the money collected is going where it is intended , not to line someones pocket or build a retirement fund for some person sitting at a desk doing nothing for the people . Because I have all the faith in the world in our wonderful Government , right now.
