Fishing License

We strongly recommend that you purchase your licenses and permits by visiting the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website.

With some exceptions, you must have a license to fish in Florida. There are two types of fishing licenses: freshwater and saltwater. Each one has certain restrictions for the type of fish you can take. Combination licenses and different commercial freshwater fishing licenses are also available.

Licenses and permits are issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). They can be purchased online, by calling 1-888-486-8356, in person at our public service office or in sporting goods stores or hunting and fishing equipment retailers.

Fishing licenses are regulated by the State of Florida with fees for licenses and permits set by the Florida Legislature.

For more information, please visit FWC website.
