New Saltwater License Needed for 2013

If you are planning to fish saltwater anytime soon, you will need a new 2013 license.  I don't know if the vendors around the state have them yet, but I do know you can get them online at https://www.ri.gov/DEM/saltwater/ I got mine this morning from the DEM website.  The cost is $7 for residents which makes it the least expensive in New England. There is some confusion with fishing licenses in this state because your saltwater license expires at the end of December while your freshwater license expires at the end of February.  So, freshwater guys....you can still fish for two more months with your 2012 license. Only in RI!
