Is this fine in regards to fresh water only or have the put a fine in place for saltwater now too?

You can be fined if over the age of 16 for not having either. I haven't done freshwater in over ten years, after returning to the 'briny' by boat, kayak or surfcasting. I would tell everyone that while going through DECALS (DEC online) is quick, if you fail to print the card (which is only as good as the paper in your printer) you have to go local to get the license. I had failed to print my new marine registry out in January mistakenly thinking that Albany would send me the plastic ones as it does for hunting liecenses. Wrong. Princess Andie no longer lets Albany send out marine registry licenses (probably because they are free). so last week I paid my property taxes early and in five extra minutes, got the nice plastic marine registry licenses free for both my wife and I at Town Hall for just showing her old marine registry card and my drivers license. They are in camo this year, not all yellow or green or brown with black type as in the past. I guess this is good for turkey hunting since the fish, oh , never mind.

Just a little clarification. Freshwater fishing licenses are not free. Registration cards for saltwater fishing are free (God knows for how long).

Oh how I hate those two words.

Forgive me for being confused, but a few days ago I went to get my outer beach permit. While I was there I asked to get a fishing license and was told they did away with needing a fishing license.

Was I given wrong information ? I went to west Sayville golf coarse since they offer the green key and outer beach and I thought the fishing all in one place.

Some back ground. I am not a fisher but my brother in law is and I figured I would get the license so I could take my kids fishing with their uncle and not have to worry.

They did do away with the saltwater fishing license. It was only in existence for about a year IIRC somewhere around 2009. NYS replaced it with a marine registry program which is free (for now). You do need to resister if you are over 16 & fish the local saltwater. There are exceptions such as you do not need one if you're fishing on party/charter boats.

Outer beach permit ? the semantics will vary from town to town but I think the golf course guy or gal confused the requirement to be on the saltwater marine registry and carry proof of that with some sort of vehicle permit/ pedestrian park access called an outer beach permit...

There is no saltwater fishing license but, if you are over age 16 and do any saltwater fishing, from OTHER THAN party or charter boats, you must be listed in the FREE saltwater registry. The freshwater license is still a paid license.

I buy a fresh water license every year because I fish fresh water and the money goes to maintaining the fishery. I will never buy a salt water license because the State contributes nothing to the salt water fishery and this is just another attempt to collect money. F@#K Cuomo.
