    Let's hope we can make it the lesser of two evils. Of the two bills in the New Jersey Legislature, the license legislation has been pulled. The free registry legislation is in the various committees in both houses.

    The only way to secure the revenues within the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Bureau is by an amendment to the state constitution.

    These exemptions can only be from the fees.

This could mean millions of dollars for the resource that other wise goes to Utah or Kanas, etc. Currently do not get this now but will get it once a license is in.
    The amount that we would receive from the Sportfish Restoration Fund will be based on the amount of licensed fishermen. We are receiving some Wallop-Breaux funds for species studies and the artificial reef program.

By the way, the fed has a law that if federal funds go to states fopr other than fish related reasons that came from the fed excise tax, the states cannot touch it without huge penaltys. Hence, the hammer that stops it. Also, if we do not do this, then we cannot customize for our anglers. Again, its coming if we like it or not. It just may be called something different. Let us take control and not Washington.
    No argument about where the money would go with the feds got it, NOAA has already admitted publicly that it would go directly to the General Fund. Several governors across the country including New Jersey's on several occasions have tried to raid their respective fish and wildlife revenues. The US Fish and Wildlife Service’s Wildlife and Sportfish Restoration Program has regulations that not only prevent this, but allows them to require the payback of already used funds. Tomorrow night's meeting will hopefully be the first in a series that will enable our voices to be heard in Trenton and Washington.

    We will lose more if the funds are not protected from budget raiders. The increase we would receive from the SRFP would not be as substantial as you might think. "Appropriate State agencies are the only entities eligible to receive grant funds. Each State's share is based 60 percent on its licensed anglers (fishermen) and 40 percent on its land and water area. No State may receives more than 5 percent or less than 1 percent of each year's total apportionment. Puerto Rico receives 1 percent, and the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, and the District of Columbia each receive one-third of 1 percent. "

    DEP, Div of Fish & Wildlife to be guest speaker concerning Saltwater License!

    A letter was recently circulated to several clubs by the DEP DF&W's director Dave Chanda about this matter. What follows is a summary of what the letters addressed:


    "...a new federal law requires virtually all saltwater anglers to be included in a national registry of marine fishermen beginning next year. Anglers from NJ and other states without their own angler directories must register with the federal government. By 2011, those saltwater anglers will be forced to pay a federal fee when they register.

    ...we recognize that this mandate could have significant implications for all anglers who enjoy saltwater fishing in our state.

    To help everyone get the facts, the DEP's DF&W is offering to attend upcoming meeting.....present helpful information ...on what this will mean to you.

    Last night's meeting was the first and hopefully a series of meetings, to reach a consensus among the user groups of recreational fishermen here in New Jersey. As last night's meeting was the first no major decisions were made. A discussion of the pros and cons for the several methods of dealing with this new rule were reviewed and noted. If you would like to attend any further meetings, contact [email protected] and let him know you would like to attend future meetings.

    Well seems we are a few years away for the Communist State of America.

    Might as well just turn over our pay check and let the govt tells us what we can do and when we can do it.

    Tax to fish,
    Tax to smoke.
    tax to live
    tax to die.
    When do we NOT get taxes? ( only when we Burp of pass gas. We will soon since we may be harming the Ozone.

    No license is needed in New Jesrey yet. It's at least 2 years away. As for the beaches in the Cape May area, you can only drive on the beaches of Wildwood, North wildwood and Wildwood crest beaches but you need permits which can be obtained from the local police departments for a fee of like 25-30 bucks. You will get a list of things that you will need for your vehicle and it must be inspected by a police officer. Hope this helps.

    NJ registry legislation is stalled in committee due to State Budget. The license legislation was pulled. Might see movement on registry after Budget is settled. NY has amended their license legislation to make it more palatable.

    N.Y. licenses set for next year

    by Al Ristori/For The Star-Ledger
    Thursday April 09, 2009, 8:58 PM

    Anglers will be able to fish in New York this year without a license, but all that will change on Jan. 1, 2010, when the Empire State imposes a saltwater fishing license that was approved this week as part of Gov. David Paterson's budget proposal.

    Fred Golofaro, managing editor of The Fisherman, has been keeping track of the New York license saga from his office in Shirley, Long Island, and he got word Wednesday of the Senate approving the legislation already passed in the Assembly. Fortunately, the effective date was pushed back to Jan. 1, and the fees lowered.

    Residents will pay only $10 for an annual license, instead of the $19 originally proposed. The non-resident charge is way down from $40 to $15, and there's also a $10 seven-day license or a daily fee of $5. Vessels for hire will be charged an additional $450 on top of the fee they're already paying in order to cover their passengers.

    Golofaro said there is a reciprocal provision with neighboring states, but he calls it a gray area at present and believes it will only apply to states that have saltwater licenses.

    New York fishermen had set up a committee to perfect a reasonable saltwater license that would also satisfy the federal registration requirement. Gov. Paterson ignored their recommendations in his original budget proposal, and wanted the saltwater funds placed in the Wildlife Management Fund where the new funding could be used for unrelated fresh water and forest purposes. The Legislature restored the essential portions, and included a Marine Resources Account within the Wildlife Conservation Fund.

    Yet, Golofaro was informed that the governor has already declared the saltwater funds coming in next year will be used to pay for presently unfounded positions in the Department of Environmental Conservation rather than for the launching ramps, piers, etc., that license advocates were expecting.

    That's fair warning to New Jersey anglers if a saltwater license is proposed here. Gov. Jon Corzine has made it clear that he won't observe legislative dedication of a tax in the present battle over arts funding. Only a constitutional amendment would safeguard license monies from politicians. Check my daily blog at nj.com/shore/blogs/fishing for updates on this as well as the fishing outlook.

    OK, lets see, So i only go fresh water fishing a few times a year, so I need to buy a license, and if I happen to catch a trout, that is $10 more. If my wife wants to cast, then I need another license. By the way, my 2 year old son just caught his first fish! IT was freshwater, BUT hey he is ONLY 2

    Saltwater license, I feel it is really not needed, UNLESS that money goes into something useful, not to write more people tickets and harrass families who are just having fun on their 2 week vacation.

    I live near what I believe (I could be wrong) is the largest Swamp Reserve (Thankfully, I don't live too close, haha.

    In the state of NJ, if i fish in a Swamp, would I need a Swamp License? DOES ANYONE KNOW? Pretty soon I am going to need to have a lawyer to go Fishing!!!
