Default Is it legal to....

Is it legal to have a gun in a boat for the sole purpose of shooting water moccosins while setting bush hooks on the river?

I see bunches of them and really wish I had a 410 with me to kill them. I hate snakes, they creep me out.

Why kill them let them alone and they will leave you alone. If one happens to fall in the boat blast away. Kill the snakes and you will be dealing with rats in the boat.

90% of venomous snake bites happen while someone is trying to kill a venomous snake.

I don't like them either, but if they leave me alone, I will leave them alone. Unless they are around my garage or house , cause my wife won't get off the table till it's dead.

I'm no game warden but I would think you could have any gun you wanted in the boat or strapped on your side if engaged in fishing or hunting activities or heading to or from either.

Just called FWC. Totally legally. You can carry the 410 in the boat, out in the open. The only place you run into an issue is if you were carrying a HANDGUN and you got out of the boat on land then you are now possibly carrying a concealed weapon if in holster under shirt, etc. They said it gets gray area there. Depends on the land ownership, location of the land.

They said with a 410 carry ift from the car to the boat and put it in boat. Once back from the trip carry it from the boat to the car.
Snagged Line and cobe killer like this.

I wouldn't go on the river without one. Those boogers will try to get in the boat if they smell fish.

Mark, to answer the actual question....

Yes, you can have a gun on the boat. This is considered different than regular concealed carry type of situation. You can either have it exposed or hidden.

Look at the link below:

Florida Statutes - Chapter 790, section 790.25, (3) - para. H.

Quote:
(3) LAWFUL USES.—The provisions of ss. 790.053 and 790.06 do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes:........

(h) A person engaged in fishing, camping, or lawful hunting or going to or returning from a fishing, camping, or lawful hunting expedition;
