Saltwater licence

With all our brothers coming over from across the pond and from other compass points;I just want to remind you of the need of a saltwater licence,this is new this year for all of us.You can obtain one by going to the Mass. Division Marine fisheries web site ,pay your $10.00 plus handling fee then down load a copy.Don't get caught without one,I know of several folks already been checked for one.

I went to the site. When I got to the checkout for the license, the price listed for the "Recreational Saltwater Fishing Permit" was $0.00 with a "Convenience Fee" of $1.55. I also had the option of making a donation of $9.71 or $24.27. Is this the right license and what is this about? Thanks for shedding some light...

Thanks for the reminder for the licence. I now have one printed off.

PJ had raised a issue which I was going to post about and it's to do with parking permits.
I have tried a search online but it seems it's a complicated matter.
Can anyone give me some pointers on what needs to be done to avoid any fines/car being towed away ...
Any help appreciated.
Mark

Greg- you must be a "man of a certain age"- "seniors" get the saltwater license free of charge, but still have to pay the "convenience fee" for processing/mailing.

starsky- unfortunately, there is no "one permit" parking permit here on Cape Cod- each town has its own permitting system for "beach" parking- most towns do not start enforcing/ticketing until the weekend of Memorial Day (the weekend AFTER the spring clave), but you will have to check the official websites of EACH individual town you are thinking of fishing in (ie Dennis, Brewster, Chatham, Yarmouth) to determine what their individual beach parking policies are and when exactly they start enforcing them. There are also certain areas that are NOT covered by town "beach" parking permits, such as the parking area in front of Chatham lighthouse, which requires no permit but has a time limit on how long you can "legally" park there before the Chatham police slap a ticket/have you towed (whichever they are in the mood for at the time), so parking there past the allotted time limit is AT YOUR PERIL. Most of us who want to fish there park further down the road along Bridge Street, then hike from there to the beach in front of the lighthouse (Juro's "Big Girl Bar" area).
Hope this helps.

FlyDoc,

Thanks for the info. It seems it's as complicated as I first thought. It's like some parking restrictions in the UK, they are so complicated at times you wonder if it's a ploy to get some extra money for the government.
I'll speak to PJ and see what he normally does when he visits.
Cheers,
Mark

Most beaches begin checking for permits on the 3rd Saturday of June.
There are exceptions. Last season Paine's started a week earlier.

EHHH? WHAT'S THAT YOU SAID?? Guilty as charged. I did decide to make a "donation" of $9.71. That caused the "processing fee" to drop down to $.29 and presto, I ended up with a nicely rounded charge of $10 that just happened to match the fee. Amazing coincidence, no?

Thanks for the explanation, the site didn't give me a clue.

It is a ploy...but for Town government.Most parking lots are free prior to 8or9 a.m. and after 4or5 p.m.Fines can range from$25 on up.Depending on the town.Some lots are closed at dark or alittle later[10pm] due to "issues" from past years.These are usually in the more populated areas[party crowds].Now out on the Lower Cape where the National Seashore has juristiction it gets alittle different.There are Town maintained parking lots and Seashore maintained lots within in the same towns[wellfleet,truro] so each has different fees and slightly different rules.Seashore maintained[Federal Gov.] beaches.Eastham,Wellfleet,Truro,Ptwn. if you want to fish those beaches and use their lot after 11 p.m. to sunrise you will need to get a FREE parking pass to display on your dashboard.These can be obtained at the Seashore headquarters in Eastham,Wellfleet,and Ptwn 8-4 7days a week.The Park Rangers do patrol these lots all night and can/will tow you.Make sure you have your fishing license with you also.They will be checking you even if you're on the beach.The Park Rangers are Federal Officers[not rent-a-cops] so be carefull.I deal with these people frequently so a word to the wise.All the Bayside beaches are Town maintained except for Great I. in Wellfleet and Herring Cove in Ptwn.Both of these are Federal.Great I. has been closed at night the last few years.These new fishing licenses are going to be a great excuse for law enforcement to "check" you so watch out if you've had a "couple".
