Some good news for a change
Wonder how they determine which states the license will be reciprocal (or is it reciprocated....ahhh f**k it) in and which states will not?? I'll have to rethink my trip to Cape Cod in early June, which I take every year to fish with my uncles in the So. Dennis/Barnstable Harbor area, and whether or not I wanna pay the out of state license fee (what is it again, $15, $20?) for one day of fishing? Doesn't seem to make much sense to me, more the principle than the matter of forking out the extra dough. Maybe things will change between now and then?? Is the Maine salt water license reciprocal in any other states? Are any other state's licences reciprocal for fishing in Maine waters? Hmmm, sounds like I have some research to do. Thanks for the heads up though man
