NJ salt water license


Tony, I agree with you NJ has a bad reputation when it comes corruption.The State of NJ is under federal mandate to establish a salt water license. If NJ fails to do so the feds will do it and take the money. At this point it is about who  we trust with the money the State of New Jersey or the Federal Government. With the feds we have zero chance it will be dedicated to improve are fishing resource, it goes directly to the general fund. The money can be dedicated to fish and wildlife in NJ, if NJ creates a salt water license. The money collected from hunting and fresh water fishing licenses and permits has been dedicated to fish and wildlife for over one hundred years”.In that time it has never been  used for anything other than fish and wildlife. So we do have a chance if  NJ establishes a salt water license. The NJ salt water license will generate about 40 million dollars annually to enhance your fishing opportunities.

    When will it end tax for this tax for that. It is a never ending battle. We all spend enough just to keep up on the boat, purchase fishing tackle, fuel, bait and the list goes on and on. This is just another reasong to tax us. When we all stand up and finally say we have had enough and won’t take it any longer it just might end. Look at the different species of fish that we have. How many are we actually aloud to keep? It is a disgrace what this has come to. A day of civil unrest is what is needed! Keep catching and keeping what ever you want and clog up the courts. They will think twice about it next time.

    I see your point about the taxes.. Dedicated funding that would come via a fishing license fee Is what the NJ fish and wildlife needs at this point. It would provide the funding for projects that would really increase our marine resources. If we give the money to the feds for a permit we will not see a dime of it.

    it’s no wonder the politicians screw us every chance they get!
    wake up and see a tax for what it is.
    we will not see a penny from a sw license.
    anything dedicated can be un-dedicated.
    we in jersey have the country’s crookedest politicians from the guv on down.
    to expect them to do the right thing is a laugh.
    a registry can be done for a buck or two so why would you want to pay more?

    The main concern among most people opposed to a salt water fishing license is the money raised will not be used to enhance fishing. The fear is the money will be stolen by Trenton politicians.To quote Former Fish and Wildlife Chief McDowell { in over one hundred years the money collected from hunting and fresh water fishing licenses has “never been” used for anything other than fish, game and wildlife.} As proven in other states the money raised through a salt water license greatly improves the fish stocks and enhances salt water fishing. Is this where we stand in New Jersey we should forego the benefits of a salt water license out of fear our elected officials will steal the money! I am sure there is a way to guarantee the money will be safe.

    as stupid as it sounds let the feds handle it
    they fouled up the the bail out so much maybe they will give New Jersey a bonus for not catching fish but then again state goverment isn’;t all that great .
    let’s debate it for about four years and we can vote the current group out

    Bill, I was in Florida this Feb. I saw first hand how the money rasied from their salt water license has enhanced the fishing. The license is not going to happen here any time soon. Bill I really believe the salt water license will work.
