Question/Topic: My father is over 65 (77) and visits me for several months per year. He is also a disabled vet. Does he need a fishing license to fish in and around Tampa Bay -- salt water 
Answer/Pointer: Visit the FL Game and Freshwater Fish Commission site at: An excerpt from the site : Sportsmen from anywhere in the United States and Canada now can purchase Florida hunting and fishing licenses with a credit card by calling a toll-free telephone number.
