The New Jersey legislature is pushing for a free saltwater fishing license for its residents. Other states in the northeast charge between $7 to $10 a year and the states reciprocate with each other, making the need for an in-state and an out-of-state saltwater fishing license unnecessary.
I understand that saltwater fishing in Florida is different than in the northeast, and the money raised through licensing is put to better use in Florida. But the price for a Florida license is beginning to look a bit expensive.
Look at the fees charged to non-residents; $17 for a 3-day license and $30 for a seven-day license? Tourists are getting gouged. It might be better just to charge a non-resident $25 for the year and be done with it. It should reduce overhead and it certainly should look a lot more friendly to the tourists.
