Hi, I’m David Blazer, director of the Fisheries Service for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. On October 1, 2015, the Maryland recreational fishing and crabbing license system will switch from a calendar year to a 365-day schedule. The change includes the non-tidal and tidal licenses as well as the popular sport fishing and crabbing boat decals. Signed into law by Governor Larry Hogan in May, this improvement provides more value and greater flexibility to recreational
anglers and crabbers. Visit a local tackle shop, stop by one of
our many service centers or order online. Get your license today and start enjoying Maryland’s terrific fishing opportunities.
