    Yes, you do. All fish and game belong to the state, regardless of whether they are found on private or public property.

    The water belongs to the state. If you want to fish on dry land, I'm sure the state is ok with that

    if you fish in fresh water you need a license. Salt water I am not sure how the regs go, but I think distance is involved, so places you need a license and others you dont. If I was you I would just go by a one day pass it is a lot cheaper then one for the whole year when you only have 4 months left.

    Yes and you need a non- resident license as owning land does not make a resident

    So, you're saying he doesn't need a license to fish SALT water? WRONG!!!!!!! You absolutely need a fishing license, and in this case a non-resident fishing license.

    No what I am saying is some times you don't need one in salt water, and it has to deal with waters controlled by the state and water that is deemed international. It also depends on state regs.
