Get A License!
Whether you are a resident of Florida or just visiting, be sure you have a current fishing license. Fishermen over the age of 16 are required to obtain a fishing license before fishing in freshwaters or saltwater unless you are fishing on a privately-owned pond. The rules and regulations for saltwater fishing are different from freshwater fishing. Learn more about the rules and regulations and obtain a license before you fish!
Before purchasing recreational fishing licenses and permits, please verify all requirements based on activity.
All anglers (including those 65 and older) who intend to fish for or harvest certain reef fish from a private vessel in Florida are required to obtain the State Reef Fish Angler designation.LEARN MORE
