Looks like big brother is wanting to get into more of our business.This needs to be boycotted .I don't see this as any of their business.


December 18, 2009: The new National saltwater Angler Registry will be launched by the federal government on Jan. 1, 2010 and will require virtually all saltwater recreational anglers in the United States to call each year and register. The program is an effort to build a complete and accurate "phonebook" to better contact anglers to obtain catch information directly from them. Registration can be done through a toll-free number, 1-888-674-7411, or online at www.CountMyFish.noaa.gov. Anglers will be required to provide their names, dates of birth, addresses, telephone numbers, and the regions where they intend to fish, although they will not be restricted to fishing only in those regions and will not be required to register separately for each region in which they fish. There will be no charge to register until 2011, at which point an annual registration fee of about $25 a year will apply. All fees collected through this federal program will go to the U.S. treasury.


Those exempted from Registry requirements are: anglers under the age of 16; those who only fish on licensed charter, party or guide boats; hold a Highly Migratory Species Angling permit; or hold and are fishing under a valid commercial or subsistence fishing license or permit. The National saltwater Angler Registry is a federal, not state, requirement. State fishing license fees will continue to be required. For more information on the Registry, please go to www.CountMyFish.noaa.gov.

if you hold a valid louisiana or mississippi saltwater license you are already in the registry. the only state that is fighting this is massachusetts or maine, i can't remember which. one of them does not have a saltwater license program.

remember we did not inherit these resources from our parents, we are merely borrowing them from our children

i just checked it, it is maine that does not have a saltwater license and they are fighting the registry. both mississippi and louisiana turn over the list of saltwater anglers to the federal government because of matching funds available because of the excise tax that is collected federally on the manufactor and sale of sporting goods.i think that it was the dingall- johnson act. ed

it was the pittman- robertson act of 1937 that put an excise tax on firearms, fishing gear, etc. and these funds are available to the states on a matching fund basis. it is this tax that funds the dingall-johnson act.

Call me naive, but if the govt sees how many we are, that can only help our cause. There is always a chance for a fee(tax) but that buys us a place at the table usually. Doesn't bother me that much.
