Turned 65 today so after treating myself to a big breakfast I drove on down and purchased my life time fishing license and picked up a year one for my other half. Now it just has to get warm enough where she will agree to go out on the water!!

Got my lifetime last year - at 75! Great deal, $30 for fresh and salt. My son lives in VA where if you're 65+, you can just fish - no license required even non-resident. Now that's a good deal. My home state of NH says if you're a non-resident at ANY age, they'll sell you a season ticket for $63 - not going back!

crabman, I searched the VA fishing license regs at http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/fishing/regulations/licenses.asp#exceptions where it says
  • Persons 65 years of age or older do not need a saltwater license but must comply with the Virginia Fisherman Identification Program (FIP) requirements.
Apparently you DO need a freshwater license but surf and tidal is free. The FIP is free and online, just google it.
On the other hand, I went to a license shop in VB and he told me I did not need a license.

Thanks for the info. I fish freshwater up there. Good to know though if I ever venture to their salty areas.
