    I don’t know if the age is 16 or 18. You need a license to fish in Florida anywhere. Don’t get caught without one. The penalties are very strict. One license covers both salt and fresh.

    yes you need one and i think the guy above is wrong i think if you want to fish saltwater and freshwater it costs more.Also if you are under a certain age you wont need one but if you do Wal-mart has them but i don’t remember how much they cost but its definitely more if you want to fish saltwater too.

    saltwater- if you are under 16 and over 65 you dont need one but if you do they are about $40 for an annual one but its well worth it
