An article by Melissa Tumulty | March 10, 2018 3:42am Updated March 10th, 2018 9:57am GEORGIA — The GEORgia Fishing License is an expensive fish license with a $75 fee.
GEORGWA — The high-fishing license, with its $100 fee, is popular with families and those seeking the thrill of the hunt.
But that’s not the only way to catch a high-profile high-powered fish.
The high-flying fish character fishing license allows those who want to catch fish to bring in their own equipment and pay a $100 “pet fish” license fee.
The GEORgon State Parks Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is now offering a low-cost, no-catch license to anglers in the state.
It’s part of an effort to lower costs in the statewide fishing industry and to encourage anglers to pursue a higher level of fishing experience.BLM Director of Public Affairs Scott Anderson said the low-fished license is aimed at anglers looking for a different experience.
It’s designed to allow them to catch more fish and have a less stressful fishing experience, Anderson said.
The low-fee high-quality license is a great way to get the angler out there and experience a different type of fishing environment, Anderson added.
It also is an option for people who are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to fish.
That’s especially the case for people on the East Coast who may not be able to find a local boat for their angling needs.BLA officials are accepting applications from anglers for the low fee high- quality license starting Tuesday.
The license costs $150.
If you can’t afford it, the bureau is offering a full license for $150, Anderson noted.
It is not the first time the bureau has offered a low cost high quality license.
It is also offering a limited-access license for people interested in catching a high caliber fish, which has a $150 fee.
Anderson said it is the first license the bureau offered to the public.
It will be available in the spring for a limited number of applications, he said.
The low fee license, which allows anglers who want a high level of fish to catch larger and/or heavier fish, is not available for anglers under age 18.BLMS has received a flood of requests to register for the license, he added.
Applicants must meet all requirements, including being at least 21 years old and a current member of the BLM.
A copy of their driving license or birth certificate is required for those under 18.
The driving license and birth certificate must also show the applicant’s name, age, and a picture of the applicant, according to the bureau.
