If you buy the boating license it covers both so I just have that one . For a few extra dollars saves me from having to worry about the boating license when I go out on friends boats.

I can't wait to see them going down the Keys bridges and checking for licenses from the 15 member families camped out filling their coolers with 6" grunts.

From what I've read.
You will need a saltwater license on and after Aug 1st.
You can by a fixed structure only license for $7.50 starting July 15th.
Or you can by the regular saltwater license any time before August 1st for $17 and it will cover both boats or shore fixed objects.

Though don't quote me on that.
Also, as said above, don't forget your stamps. :D

Florida's resident saltwater anglers who fish from shore or a structure affixed to shore will need to buy a $7.50 (plus administrative and handling fees) shoreline fishing license by Aug. 1, unless they have a regular resident saltwater fishing license.

The new license applies only to Florida resident saltwater anglers who fish from shore. Resident anglers may prefer to purchase the regular recreational saltwater license that covers them, no matter where they fish for saltwater species in Florida.

Florida has always required nonresidents to have a license when fishing from shore, and they will still need to purchase a regular nonresident saltwater fishing license.

The new shoreline saltwater fishing license for residents goes on sale July 15. It provides all of the same exemptions as a regular license, including senior citizens, children, disabled people who meet certain qualifications, active-duty military personnel while home on leave, and anglers who fish from a licensed pier.

In addition, the shoreline license requirement includes two new exemptions:

anglers drawing food stamps, temporary cash assistance or Medicaid; and
anglers fishing in their home counties who use cane poles or other gear that does not depend on mechanical retrieval.
At the request of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the Florida Legislature passed the new license requirement to head off a federal license requirement that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2010, and will have a $15-$25 fee beginning in 2011. Florida's new shoreline license exempts this state's anglers from the federal license requirement.

Several hunting, fishing and conservation organizations requested other permit fee changes, which do not take effect until July 2010. They include increases in:

the state waterfowl stamp, from the current $3 to $5;
in the resident turkey permit, from $5 to $10;
the nonresident turkey permit, from $100 to $125;
the wildlife management area permit for hunting, fishing and other recreational uses, from $25 to $30;
the limited-entry or special-opportunity hunt fee, from $100 per day to $150 per day and $250 per week to $300 per week, as determined by FWC Commissioners;
the snook permit, from $2 to $10; and
the lobster permit, from $2 to $5.
Also, new laws create a $5 annual deer permit (in addition to the current hunting license requirement for deer hunters) and allow the agency to charge up to $5 per day for non-hunting and non-fishing recreation on certain wildlife management areas.

The FWC will evaluate areas where it is the lead manager to determine where to charge the fees and how much to charge. In addition, the state will use up to 10 percent of the hunting and sport-fishing fees to promote those sports, with emphasis on youth participation.

I have my saltwater license, need to know if the wife needs one.

Thats a good question I wanna know too cause Im in the same spot cause I have my license with a snook stamp and my girlfriend goes fishing with me sometimes but I would think it would cover your wife because if it didnt there would be no need for pier owners to purchase that really expensive license I would think but sence its a new law it probably has a lot of loop wholes and kinks that need to get worked out I would think but I hope someone gets the facts cause Im thinking about that now

if the pier has a blanket license you dont need one , when you paid to get on the pier your also paying for the license from the pier its self , but if you get stoped and have more than 1 bag limit for your self ( w/license ) and then another for your wife better have the recpit from the pier on you showing where you were fishing , or its a ticket .....
