Massachusetts Fishing License

Do I need a fishing license for charter fishing off Cape Cod?

According to Massachusetts law, you must have a saltwater fishing license even if you are fishing in the ocean. Luckily, Massachusetts has some of the most affordable licenses out there.


Saltwater Fishing Permit (ages 16 - 59): $10
Saltwater Fishing Permit (60+): FREE, but you still need to file for a license.

There is no difference in cost for residents or non-residents. Additionally, if you already have a fishing license for Connecticut, New Hampshire, or Rhode Island, you don't need a Massachusetts license.

Affordable Fishing Charters

These are a few of the standout fishing charters you'll be able to find. None of them are too far from Handkerchief Shoals, so you should be able to find something even if you are taxi-ing around!

Tuna fishing is likely to drive your charter up, and more cost-effective fishing will keep you on a bigger boat.
