Fishing is one of life’s great pleasures – and paying a modest fee for the privilege shouldn’t hold you back from getting out onto the water.
The fees can vary depending on region and your needs; in Florida, nonresident saltwater fishers can generally purchase a temporary license for as little as $17 for a long weekend. Meanwhile state residents who are only saltwater fishing from land or attached structures can find a no-cost resident license. You can find information on the right license for you by visiting Go OutDoors Florida.
