Before you head off to your beach campground getaway, be sure to check local fishing license requirements. Many discount camping equipment stores sell fishing licenses for their local areas, or have information posted with license information.
Most all states require fishing licenses for any type of beach fishing, from surf fishing to crabbing and shrimping along the shore, and most rangers DO check for licenses at all times of the year.
Make sure you have the right equipment for salt water fishing, too, if you're camping along the ocean. If you're not sure, check with your local discount camping equipment store to find out what you need to fish in salt water versus fresh water.
