I found another reason to love South Florida, CHEAP fishing licenses! I purchased annual fishing licenses for my sons to go out for mini lobster season and thought I had been charged incorrectly. The cost for an annual license was $17! I paid $52.70 for an annual license in Pennsylvania so one of my sons could fish for two weeks. Granted, I paid as a non-resident in PA and the non-resident in Florida is $47, but where do you think you get more bang for the buck?
