Have you got your 07' fishing license yet ?

Recommended Posts

I haven't..... but will get it today.

I think their might be a few states in which your license are good for 1 year from the date of purchse, huh ? Here in Cali though, it's Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. Meaning, if you buy your license on Dec. 15th, it's only good for 2 weeks !

Speaking of fishing license, how much do your states charge ? Here in Cali, if you buy the main license, plus the enhancement stamps (two rod and bay delta) it's like $45....... which is a lot for somebody who only fishes a few times a year. But for me, it's an absolute steal of a deal ! The best money I spend all year :-) Works out to like .30 cents a trip :-)

Peace,

Fish

PS, Just don't let it get past you ! A no license ticket in Cali will cost $400 to $600 !!!

Virginia just went to a 12 month license, good for 12 months from the date of purchase, this past summer.  Costs for '07 are $34.00 per year for both freshwater and stocked trout waters, not including saltwater.  To add in saltwater is another $12.00 annually.

In GA it is a year from when you bought it. I turned 16 in Feb. and i think i bought my license at the beginning of March. I will probably buy this year's license the day after my birthday so i can remember when I bought it. In GA, a year, resident fishing license is only $9.

I normally fish in Minnesota and Wisconsin.  I think our resident license in Minnesota is around $18 but for a non-resident license for Wisconsin is $50.  What a rip-off that is.  Get to fish around 6-7 productive months a year.  They should have seperate seasons up here.  A Open water fishing license and a frozen water license for ice fishing.  I get screwed cuz I don't ice fish.  Oh well, nothing is ever fair.

the lifetime liscenses are a card like a credit card or your BASS membership card. all the information is saved on the Department of Wildlife and Parks computers so you just have to go in a get a new card if you lose yours. i think it might be 5 or 10 bucks to get a new card.

NJ basic fishing = 22.50 add 10.50 for a trout stamp. Although someone introduces legislation every year to start salt water licensing, so far, it's been shot down every time.

I have to wait until next week to get a new one, if I bought it today it would expire tomorrow 12/31/2006. LOL

I'm sure you could say you want a '07 license and they would print it up for you.

Here in Michigan, our license will expire on March 31,07.

I know our license fee is going to increase, but i'm not sure how much. The old fee was $15.00 and $15.00 for Trout and Salmon stamp.

In PA the fishing year is the Calendar year Jan. to Jan. My local baitshop didn't receive their allocation yet. I noticed that when I got a NY license that their's runs like from Oct. to Oct. I don't do any ice fishing so I can wait a few months.

Our fishing season ends March 31, 2007 for the '06 season.  I think mid-march is when the ice houses need to be off the lakes.

Cabela10,

I'm sure you are right, I can probably get a new license today. I guess you missed the LOL at the end of my post. It was a lame joke. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

one of the good things about being 14 in NJ is that you dont need a lisence intil you are 16.

Another good thing is that land owners are more likely to let a couple of youngsters fish their ponds than some dude with a bass boat. ;)

I was at a tackle shop last weekend and they were selling the 07 fishing licenses. In Pa a resident fishing license is $21.00, but because 99% of the lakes around where I live are stocked with trout, I have to buy a trout/salmon stamp also which is $8.00. In addition I have to buy a Lake Erie stamp so I can fish in Erie which is also $8.00. But you can buy a combination trout/Erie stamp and the state shaves a little bit off the price, both together cost $14.00.

So the total for a Pa fishing license is $35.00.

I forgot to add that the license is good from January 1 through December 31.  So if you buy the current year's license on Dec 1, it would only be good for 31 days.
