While the regulations regarding fishing licenses can vary depending on the type of fishing you are doing and which body of water you are fishing in, one thing is certain: if you are going out on a fishing charter with a licensed captain, your anglers are covered under his or her license. So there is no need for you to purchase a fishing license when going on a charter fishing trip.
Of course, if you plan on doing any fishing on your own while you are in Florida, you will need to purchase a license. You can easily purchase a Florida Fishing License online at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website, or at any local fishing supply store. Whether you are a seasoned angler or a beginner, taking the time to get a license will allow you to enjoy your time on the water and do your part in protecting Florida’s amazing fisheries for years to come.
