View Full Version : Lifetime license question

02-01-2009, 09:13 PM
How does the age cutoff milestone work? For example, if you will be 62 in May, do you have to wait until your birthday to buy the lifetime license at age 62 pricing, or is your age based on what you will be during the current fishing license year?

Anyone know how that works? I hate waiting til May to buy the lic. and I'd prefer not to buy an extra yearly lic. for a couple months.

I would expect that the pricing is per your age at the time of purchase.

They told my wife I would have to be 62 when I bought the lifetime license for the discounted price. It would be worth waiting until May, if you are planning on getting the lifetime license.

I purchased my lifetime in January but my birthday was in November.
They were glad to get the money.
And in June of the same year I was checked by F&G and they saw I had a lifetime they really were extra nice to me.
Go figure?

Chris, You must have a lot of faith in California. So far they have screwed up almost every fishery in the state. I will still buy my license up til they close down the Salt point/Stewarts point spots. :(
