Who needs licenses and permits when visiting Florida?

Non-residents who are 16 years of age or older are required to have Florida licenses and permits to participate in freshwater fishing and saltwater fishing. A 'NO FEE' Shoreline fishing license is available for Florida residents only.

  • Out-of-state fishing licenses are not valid in Florida. 
  • A fishing license is required to attempt to take fish.  If you cast a line or catch and release, you need a license. 
  • A saltwater fishing license is required to attempt to take any native or nonnative marine organisms, such as crabs, lobsters, and marine plants.
