I'm wondering if there are any fishing piers along the stretch from Daytona to Palm Bay (roughly) where you pay admission but then don't need to buy a fishing license when on it?

I see lists and list of fishing piers but they generally silent as to whether the admission covers the license or not.

Thanks in advance.

Last time I checked, Cocoa Beach didn't require a license to fish from its pier. Cape Canaveral has a pier and a jetty and I'm not sure what the rules are for each.

Saltwater shoreline fishing - License Requirement

Residents and nonresidents are required to apply for and have a saltwater fishing license before fishing for saltwater fish, crabs or other marine organisms unless they are a exempt.
Residents

Residents who only saltwater fish from the land or a structure attached to land, may get the resident recreational saltwater shoreline fishing license at no cost (except for convenience fees that apply on telephone and Internet orders). NOTE: This license does NOT cover anyone fishing from a boat or from an island that they arrived at by boat.
If you have a resident recreational saltwater fishing license or a resident persons with disabilities fishing license, you do not need a shoreline fishing license because the resident recreational saltwater fishing and disability license cover fishing from the shore, a dock, a jetty or a boat.
Nonresidents

Nonresidents must purchase a 3-day, 7-day or annual nonresident saltwater fishing license when saltwater fishing from the shore or a pier, bridge or jetty attached to the shore unless fishing on a pier with a pier license.

So as an owner of a canal front home with a dock that is rented out (landlord, nonresident) if I were to fish off my dock, I would need a nonresident (3,7, or annual) saltwater fishing license when I visited and wanted to fish off of it.
What if the tenant had the license and allowed me to fish with them,would I still need a license for myself?

Thanks guys!

I normally stay on the gulf side and just buy short term licenses for the others that come with me as I have an annual license.

But since we're going to pier fish I figured might just make sense to find one with a pier license which I normally never pay attention too since I've only done that with others that have annual licenses like myself.

I found the link to all the piers and can look into those individually about their pier licenses. Thanks!

Yep Cocoa still has a pier license. I just checked them out and that will work perfectly for our group.

As a fellow non-resident, I'm pretty sure you're going to need to get a license regardless.

The annual is <$50 and if you're going to be down there twice a year or more it would probably make sense to just go that route in terms of both cost and hassle. I'm pretty sure they're CALENDAR year licenses do don't buy an annual towards the end of the year as it expires on 12/31 regardless.

One more thing. Rocket Launch on Tuesday 18th, wonder if that would jam up the fishing pier with people coming to watch? Probably not I would think, they could just watch from the beach for free.

Actually the pier gets crowded on launch days. Can't even remember anyone fishing from the pier the last time we watched from there.

Personally, I would head down to Sebastian Inlet for fishing from a pier, but you will need to buy a license for everyone.
