North Carolina salt water fishing licenses in the works.
The Raleigh News and Observer has an informative article about the salt water fishing licenses that are almost a done deal for North Carolina anglers. The senate voted Tuesday to approve its version of the bill that will create the licenses. A sticking point yet to be worked out is a repeal of the law that allows fishing with natural bait in your home county. Instead, lawmakers are proposing subsistence fishing vouchers for persons on public assistance. The latest incarnation of the bill also includes a provision for a comprehensive license that allows you to fish in both fresh and salt water.
