Well I ended up wading on the side of the road between Destin and ft walton. Actually did pretty good, I caught probably a dozen trout! Thanks for the info guys, I will try white point next time I am down.

Good Fishing

fish is fish, Eglin does not differentiate between salt or fresh water. its a $200 fine to have fish and/or fishing gear without an Eglin fishing permit.

its not the fact that you are fishing in the bay, it the fact that the gear and/or fish are in your possession on their property. spend the $20 and don't worry about it.

haha! uhhh no... you need to check your facts. i'm not offering my opinion on the matter. i've giving info that range patrol and the sweet lady at jackson guard confirmed as fact for me. here's what it says in the regs. nothing about white point or saltwater.

A. License Requirements.
1. Any person fishing in fresh water on Eglin AFB or Hurlburt Field must comply with state
fishing license requirements. A state fishing license is not required if fishing with a cane
pole in your county of residence.

2.
An Eglin Fishing Permit is required when fishing in any body of fresh water located on
Eglin AFB or Hurlburt Field property.

read further:

possession of any fishing equipment on Eglin property requires a fishing license.

makes no difference if its salt or fresh. $200 fine if caught without the proper Eglin fishing permit. just as gun possession requires a specific permit whether its hunting season or not

I think the best solution for anybody wanting a permit is to just go to the Jackson Guard, buy one and find the information there.

all right dude. i wish you'd make a call. don't take my word for it. but nowhere in the regs does it say that and you're giving wrong info. the OP said the safest thing is to just go the jackson guard and ask. you're basically saying you're right and they're wrong - me and my wife and some friends of ours all bought passes last week on three different days and got the same answer on this. and yes, there is a difference between salt and fresh. the gov't does not own the bay.

what they say at Jackson guard versus the official regs the SPs who write the tickets may have differing views. its not the first time this had happened either. always ask and trust the SPs who write the tickets.

wifes friend (photographer) got a $200 ticket because she was at white point with fishing poles her husband left in the car. all she had was a general permit. they were going to let her off but the husband who was former army started arguing with the SP.
