Saltwater And Freshwater License-free Fishing Days Begin June 7 – Lifestyle – Crestview News Bulletin

My West Coast Saltwater Fishing Article in this Issue of the Lakelander Magazine | Good Hunt

6 and Nov. 29 have also been designated license-free saltwater fishing days this year, and April 4 and 5, 2015 have been designated a license-free freshwater fishing weekend. All bag limits, seasons and size restrictions apply on these dates. Scott said, Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World, and fishing is an economic engine for our state, providing jobs from Pensacola to the Keys. These designated license-free fishing days are a great opportunity for Floridians to celebrate summer with their families and loved ones, enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors, cast a line and get hooked on fishing. We hope visitors and residents alike will be able to join in the excitement of Floridas saltwater and freshwater fishing this year by participating in one of our license-free fishing days, said FWC Chairman Richard Corbett.

Making sense of the Magnuson-Stevens Act | Boating Industry

Jeff Angers of the Center for Coastal Conservation

Of course. Do we need to be vigilant? Absolutely. But this nation has done a damn good job making sure the fish stocks in this country are as healthy as theyve ever been, or at least we know where they are and what we need to do to get them back. While he has specific goals in mine, and is working to spread the marine industrys messages, Gabriel added that the current situation with the Magnuson-Stevens Act is nobodys fault, but rather a recognition for how much things have changed since the first version of the Act was passed in 1976. Its never been more accessible to the common man to be able to get off shore and enjoy the natural resources, he said. An entire industry has exploded around this, and so you have a law that was in place that didnt have an industry when it was set. Gabriel said its unclear, at this point, what will actually be passed into law, and that his constituency is OK with changes that dont necessarily benefit recreational anglers in every case.

Unfortunately, other interests and pursuits have pushed my fishing time to the periphery. As I read back over this, though, it certainly puts me in the mood. Thanks once more to The Lakelander for permitting me the space to write. If anyone has ideas for local outdoor sporting events for future issues, feel free to drop me a note. (Check out the other features, too. If you can get past the hamburger article without wanting to rush to one of those local restaurants, youre stronger than me.) And be sure to pick up a copy of the May/June issue at any of these locations .

The upgrade will give those anglers all the fishing privileges of a combination license at the cost they would have paid if they had purchased one in the first place, said Bill Joplin, WDFW licensingmanager. Freshwater fishing license holders can purchase an upgrade to a combination license for $26.75 and current saltwater fishing license holders can upgrade to a combination license for$26.20. By purchasing theupgrade: Current freshwater license holders will gain access to saltwater fish, shellfish andseaweed. Current saltwater license holderswill gain access to fishing in lakes and rivers as summer draws near, as well as opportunities for shellfish andseaweed. Here are a few of the exciting fishing opportunities the WDFW is spotlightingthisyear: Salmon 2014 is shaping up as the year for salmon, with a forecasted return of more than 1.6 million Columbia River chinook salmon returning this fall which would be the largest since record keeping began in 1938. The ocean abundance of Columbia River coho salmon is also forecast to be about 964,000 fish three times as many fish as last year’s actual abundance. And, summer and fall chinook salmon returns to Puget Sound are expected to total nearly 283,000fish.
