Florida Fishing License Regulations

FRESHWATER FISHING
If you are a resident or non-resident of Florida, you need a valid Florida Fishing license to fish in the State's freshwater areas. The license is valid for 12 months from the day you purchase it. There is an option to purchase a Resident Five Year license, Resident Lifetime License or a combined Resident Lifetime Fresh Water Fishing and Hunting License.

If you are 15 years old or younger, or you fish with a cane pole in the county of your residence, you don't need a license. Also, if you are over the age of 65 and a resident of Florida, hunting and fishing are permitted without a license. You must carry proof of age and residency to be exempt. If you are permanently disabled, you may obtain a license without paying the state fee.

SALTWATER FISHING
Since January 1, 1990, a valid Florida Saltwater Fishing License has been required in Broward County. The License is valid for 12 months from the day you purchase it. There is an option to purchase a Five Year License or a Resident Lifetime License.

A Saltwater Fishing License is not required if you are; a resident fishing in saltwater from land or a structure fixed to land; fishing from a vessel if the operator holds a valid saltwater vessel license; a resident and a member of U.S. Armed Forces at home on leave for 30 days or less; a person who has been accepted by the Department of health and Rehabilitative Services for Development Services; an individual fishing from a licensed pier. A Saltwater License may be issued, without license fee, to any resident who is certified by a Florida Licensed physician, by any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, or by the Veterans Administration to be totally and permanently disabled or who holds a valid I.D. card issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

No person may operate any vessel wherein a fee is paid either directly or indirectly for the purpose of saltwater fishing for non-commercial purposes unless a license has been obtained. The license is based on the number of customers the vessel will carry.
