I'm pretty sure that it's $100 plus $100 per fish if you are keeping. not only that but they WILL confiscate you equipment and you may or may not get it back at court. As I hear if from a friend, the judge who resides over these hearings is on the side of having a license and doesn't mind fining people heavily.

Here in Ct I know that you not only recieve a fine. They can also take all your tackle and car or truck. You can even be banned for a year or more without a lic.

I just went through an expired license ordeal here in Virginia. Long story short, 600 odd dollars and a new drivers license later, I'm looking into a lifetime license. The old license was 5 days expired and they threw the book and a couple waffle irons at me.

Do the right thing, get that license!

I remember a friend had a run in with a game warden one January about 10 years ago in NJ. He asked for his license and a friend said he forgot it. He told the Warden he bought it at KMart. The warden asked where he bought it and was willing to call there to check. The friend said he didnt remember. The warden sort of cut him a break and issued him a citation for " Failure to display" which cost 80 + dollars. The break was he said he could have given him the full ticket for having no license at all which I think was aroud 120+. Oh yeah, and he could have confiscated his boat and all his tackle. Do yourself a favor and buy one every January for $22.50 plus $10.50 for the trout stamp if you paln on targeting any trout waters. And make sure you display it.
