    No she does not need one. Just make sure she is REALLY not helping, including maneuvering the boat.

    When the game wardens checked us the first of 2 times last night I asked them that question and they said a non fishing person such as a kid on board doesn't need to have a licence or report card. But like the other BD'r said, they can't help with any part of it- messing with gear ect... Oh they also gave my friend a warning (on the water) because he had not filled in his report card. They said it would had been a $400 fine! We were planning to fill it out once we got to the dock. Can't mess around with those guys. Oh ya, got three keepers out of 50 or 60 shorts. The kids get a kick out of a net full of 10 bugs all flipping around when you pull them up. Hope you take your girl out.

    I was on the same boat last year. Things may have changed but from what the dfw told me it’s ok as long as we didn’t keep over limit. So if it’s just you two going then you can only keep your limit.

    Your ok as long as she is not a participant in the process of obtaining the lobster dinner. She must spectate. My gal sat on one shoulder telling me the bugs where big enough, (even though they were shorts) meanwhile on the other shoulder I saw the game warden.

    Just be honest. LEO are good at figuring out if you are lying about anything (a homemade sling, for example), and will reasonably conclude if you are lying about one thing, you have no credibility on anything.

    Spot on. A one day license with a card will be a lot cheaper than a ticket.

    And if she’s under 16 she only needs the card, right? Seems like very very cheap peace of mind and potentially an extra limit to take home.

    yes, I take my 11 and 8yr old. Both have cards neither need licences.. If anything it triples my limits and the kids have a blast hunting for bugs in the night. And they get a kick out of the by catch.. A slimy eel trying to take off a finger will make any kid smile!

    Get her a card. So for about $10 there is no question if its legal or not. Plus a chance to take another limit home. If she touches any of the gear in the presents of the DFG it will be way more than $10.

    Resident Sport Fishing License $48.34

    One-Day Sport Fishing License (resident or nonresident) $15.69

    Two-Day Sport Fishing License* (resident or nonresident) $24.33

    Ten-Day Non-Resident Sport Fishing License** $48.34

    Sport Ocean Enhancement Validation $5.40

    Spiny Lobster Report Card $9.72

    Spiny Lobster Report Card Non-Reporting Fee $21.60

    She probably needs the above to be legal. I suppose a 1-day or 2-day would work if its the last time she plans to go. Remember the stupid license is annual and expires December 31.

    Under 16 doesn't need a license or Ocean Enhancement. Not to derail, but whatever happened to the bill pushing for licenses to be 12mo from date of purchase?

    If they are really not going to help, then no card required. But once the bugs start coming over the rail, they may want to get involved, so you might as well get them a card.

    I’ll be honest, I’m not really a fan of guys bringing their small children on the boat ( 3-5 years old or for that matter, anyone who is not going to help in the process) just so they can bring home extra lobster. No toddler can really actively help in the process, so I find it somewhat deceitful. Just me.

    But I fully support getting kids involved as soon as they can really be an active participant in the process.

    I always enjoyed seeing kids of any age out with their parent or parents. But a small boat at night rocking in the ocean is just about the most dangerous situation that you can put a youngster into. Even if the adults are careful about putting life jackets onto the kids at the start, in a few hours with potty breaks and eating snacks, the jackets somehow get unfastened if not taken off while the adults are focused on the dark water. Several times I had to bark at people who were not paying proper attention. The usual excuse was, "Well, I couldn't get a baby sitter, so I'm doing the best that I can."

    A night hunt for someone in the water is the absolute worst way to spend your evening.
