Just a reminder to those planning on attending the 2 hand gathering at the canal,make sure you have your licence,this is a public area with lots of access for the fish cops to check you out.

See other post... if you buy a SW license anywhere but a few states you don't need to do anything.

Juro, so you don't plan to fish salt in MA during 2011? I don't think MA has a reciprocal agreement with WA.

John...the processing fee for the permit us "seasoned anglers" don't need, is $1.75.
It must be to pay their computer to do a 5 minute activity...or...they will have a record of who is terrorizing the stripers.

Would be useful if they had an optional questionaire or info format that we could report observations.

Can't wait to see someone slosh out a mile and a half on NM to check my permit.

Processing Fee

John

I guess I have been living in MA way too long...

Just assumed that NOTHING is free in MA... the internet processing fee is $1.55
for a FREE license if you are over a certain age....sorry Warren!

Not sure if the fee applies if you pick up the license at MA sites set up for that... but the most convenient site I found was Gloucester and with today's gas prices it would have cost much more to get there and back... not sure why they didn't allow local town halls to give out the license?

Jim -

Yes I only had it half right, the fed don't need anything anymore but the state does.

NEW FOR 2011
Starting January 1, 2011, if you have a saltwater recreational fishing license or registration from any state or U.S. territory EXCEPT Hawaii, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, you are AUTOMATICALLY registered and do not need to take further action. The fee for registering beginning January 1, 2011 is $15 for most people. Learn more.
Please be sure to follow all laws and regulations in the waters in which you are fishing.

Federal vs MA license...

I hope I don't further add to any confusion but I looked in the FAQ section of
the MA Saltwater License site and found this... hope it helps:

FAQ:

Do I need to sign up for the National Saltwater Angler Registry as I did in 2010 (and pay an additional $15 starting in 2011)?

No, the Federal permit no longer covers you to fish in Massachusetts waters. Your MA permit allows you to fish in MA and Federal waters as well as land your fish in Massachusetts. However, if you fish for tuna, billfish, swordfish, and/or sharks you will need a Highly Migratory Species permit from the Federal government.

Striblue quote: "Actually, I don't need to give the government anymore info than they already have on me."
For the record, I have it on reliable infornmation....that the government, including all secret and semi-secret agencies....have reviewed all the data they have on me....they reportedly fell asleep...I think that I may be the reason why air traffic controllers are falling asleep.
