    Fishing License Question

    What license or multiple licenses do I need as an out of state resident wanting to surf and pier fish? Also I've heard something about a new license for reef fish?
    Thanks, James

    Full out of state salt water to fish anything beside a pier .....meaning(beach) , if fishing for mangrove snapper (any reef fish) get the 10.00 reef fish endorsement
    mine was like 54.00 for the year.... I guess it is by state of residence for the price

    So I don't need a separate one for the pier? I always buy both just to be sure

    No, Big Boy. Saltwater license is good anywhere in saltwater and that includes the pier. However you still have to pay the entrance fee to fish the pier.

    Nope, the full salt water covers everything.... you still will need a daily fishing pass for the pier 9.00 ...unless veteran then discount to 6.00, separate from the fishing license.... if only fishing the pier they have a license for that at about 11.00 for the year, but good for pier only, not the beach or pass
