If fishing might be or already is on your to-do list this weekend and you don’t have your fishing license for this year, we’ve got some good news: You can easily get it on your phone within minutes -- like, even if you’re already on the waters with fishing pole in hand. The digital age makes life so convenient, doesn’t it?
In case you didn’t know, the state of Florida has youth licenses available for both freshwater and saltwater fishing. It is optional for children ages 8 to 15.
Those who are 16 and older are required to have a license.
Having said that, click or tap here to get started on your license. It will only take minutes and you’ll have your digital copy in hand. No waiting!
You can also get it by downloading the free Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission mobile app.
It’s worth noting that out-of-state fishing and hunting licenses are not valid in Florida.
