    Fishing License to fish from shore?

    Do I need to purchase a fishing a license to fish from the beach?
    I saw prices on the internet that looked pretty expensive, like $17 for just 3 days or $30 for for just 7 days!

    $17 is about what Illinois charges for non-residents to fish.

    $17 is expensive? Are you going to buy bait?

    Im just used to paying $15 for an entire year, so intitially $17 for 3 days was a shocker, but now that you guys say thatís just what is, I have no problem getting it.

    Out of state licenses are pretty standard. Just figure it into the cost of doing business. It will be well worth it when you scratch that blacktip off your bucket list. Good luck

    Buy annual.. it's good for 13 months.. if you do the math.. and you return within a year, you don't have to buy a license but every other year..
    But hey dare, what do I know.. I'm just a Yankee salmon fisherman.. or no? See some of my pictures on instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BDMhg_NKD21/... search jamers_h
