I get mine for around $7 a yeat since i am disabled so i have no need to get a lifetime.
Yours should be free and you should never have to pay one thin dime in taxes for the rest of your life. You my friend have paid your dues as far as I am concerned. Thank you for your service.

I think you guys might reconsider not buying the lifetime ticket.
Gov. Moonbeam WILL raise your cost to fish!
You don't get to vote on that.

DID WE GIVE UP WHEN THE GERMANS BOMBED PEARL HARBOR??!!!!!!!!

They want us to stop buying licenses and give in. It makes it that much easier to close off more areas in the future without having to spend any money to do it.

I finally donated to the Save California Fishing, since I cannot make all the meetings and such. It may not be much, but it is something I can do right now.
I must have missed it.... When did they do that? :rofl::rofl:

I think you missed it....:rofl:

Got mine yesterday at the Fred Hall Show. At the Fish and Game booth (5% discount). Every little bit helps.

The way I look at it, because we fishermen (and hunters) provide a lot of funding to the F&G though our license revenues, we carry extra weight when we speak out before the State officials on how we want California's fish and game resources managed.

Well, there I was fishing in the water hole I spotted while mountain biking, when I heard leaves rustling. I turned around ready to stick my K-bar into some towering, furry creature about to devour me, but as it turned out, it was something far more scarier...it was the DFG. :oinker:"How're we doing," he asked. "Fine, just fishing," I replied. :oinker:"Did you know that fishing here isn't allowed? It's a protected tributary and people want to keep it nice." He stated. "I didn't know." I replied.

I'd been fishing that hole for quite some time. I've always been careful to not leave anything behind, including fishing line, and I've always picked up after the a-holes who don't take as much care to keep the place pristine as I do. In the end, I knew it was a matter of time before my "secret" hole would be "confiscated" from me, but the fact that I buy my license, catch and release, and do my part to conserve the environment, somehow gave me the sense that I wasn't doing anything wrong. Well, my disappointment with this experience can't possibly be put into words, so I'll do my best to express my discontent toward the DFG and all those seeking to take away our right to fish in California in a way that can't possibly be misconstrued. :finger:

I'M WATING. Maybe if the DFG is not funded as normal and the gov takes a hit they may understand what kind of impact this MLPA may have on the sportfishing industry. Maybe I will just buy a one day when the fishing is better so I don't support those who do not support us.

Lets see how far they will go without my 50.00......

No, he didn't fine me. He was actually pretty cool, but of course, this had everything to do with my attitude about the whole thing. I really don't understand your question, but as far as the "I didn't know" reference, I meant that I was unaware that it was a "protected tributary," as it is just a water hole alongside the road. As far as how the DFG ties into all of this, well, I think you already know. I don't want to go off on the whole DFG/MLPAI fiasco because I think it's already been stated quite clearly (I also fish salt water).

One day they will either forbid all fishing and hunting or in addition to licenses each implement used for said sport will be heavily taxed. In addition to or instead of the "NRA" there will be the "NSPA" National Sports Participation Association. There will be yearly, decade or lifetime memberships as well as constant requests for additional money (before anyone gets upset I'm a life member of the NRA). We will all pay loads of additional money but our preferred presidential candidate will still not be elected. We will all smarten up and have our candidate lie and run on a platform of no hunting, fishing and anti guns. He/she wins and the country has a massive pole switch back to what our country was all about. ARE YOU WITH ME?

I'm curious if that "protected tributary" is truly off limits to fishing? Seems like the state constitution protects our right to fish in state waters. Is the place shown as an MPA or is it on private property?

Ahem, You must buy a license if you want to fish Kelifornia.... simple enough?
This is a fishing forum with fisherman on it- and some people arent buying fishing licenses? I suspect 99 percent of you will buy a license, but want to seem badass and rebelious.
You have to buy the license because the alternative is way more expensive. Its the diff between getting Vessel Assist and not--
Its a no brainer. That is all......

If you don`t buy a fishing license, Then you can`t fish and they won, But if you do then that means you stuck it to the man and we all all know that the f--ker can`t stand it, So stick up for your right as a citizen of this f--ked up state and do the right thing for your sanityand get your license and fish on.
