FAQs: Recreational Licenses | Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

What does a Resident 65+ Hunt/Fish certificate cover and where do I get it?
Florida residents age 65 or older only need a Florida Driver License or Identification Card to prove residency and age. They are not required to purchase the following recreational licenses and permits:

Saltwater fishing, freshwater fishing and hunting licenses
Snook, lobster, deer, management area, muzzleloading, turkey, archery, crossbow, *Florida waterfowl, and migratory bird permits.
The Resident 65+ Hunt/Fish certificate is available, at no cost, online at GoOutdoorsFlorida.com, or at local county tax collectors office, but it is not a required item.

While a license is not required for resident seniors, they should keep proof of age and residency in their possession while participating in these activities.

* The exemption does not apply for the federal duck stamp or tarpon tags.

I’ve tried several times to open the map in the link suggested above on my iphone and it’s unreadable. Is there somewhere I can obtain a hard copy?

Last yr. I called the DNR & they said since I was a senior I didn’t need a license, it’s FREE. Just show your drivers license. I was asked to see my ID one time & all they said was, “Have a good day”. Is this a new law that you can’t fish in Florida’s fresh waters. Or is this a Villages law!

I’m not sure what “new law” you are asking about. You need a license to freshwater fish, unless you meet the exemption requirements, such as age, are fishing on property you own, etc. Not everyone in The Villages is 65+.

No, the law I’m talking about is seniors fish for FREE. Yes I am over 65 but the comment I was referring to was the original comment said you have to have a fishing license to fish in fresh water, that’s what the original question was saying. All I said was you can fish in fresh water for FREE if you’re a senior. Aren’t you saying what I was saying in my comment. Not arguing, just saying that’s what a senior (free) fishing license is for, fishing I fresh water, not salt water!
