Licenses are not required beyond limits offshore
. For example, fishing licenses in Florida
are not required beyond three miles offshore
on the Atlantic Coast and beyond nine miles offshore on the Gulf Coast
fishing licenses for Florida State waters can be purchased at just about any place that sells fishing gear
or bait. Also, Florida does not require a license
for those under 16 or 65 and older. I can't tell you of other states, but they all have limited distance offshore requirements,- maybe all at 3 miles for ocean coasts.
