Default Alabama/Florida Fishing Question

I am fairly new to the deep sea fishing from my own boat,(I've done a fair amount of charter fishing though). I fish out of Orange Beach and I'm interested in fishing both Alabama and Florida. I have family that come to visit from Florida and the question is, If I fish in Florida but dock in Alabama, will everyone on board need to have fishing licenses from both states? also are the limits of fish the same in both states? If not would a person be fined for fishing in a state that has a higher limit of fish but docking in the state with the lower limit?

Thanks for any help.

As far as bag limits, you are governed by the laws of the state when you pass through their waters. In other words, if you fish federal waters and pass through Florida on your way back to Alabama, you are subject to Florida limits while passing through Florida waters.

first check each state & federal regulations before you do go fishing. ALABAMA - "A saltwater fishing license is required for all persons fishing or possessing fish in saltwater area of Alabama." Possessing in the main word - if you fish in federal or Florida waters & boat into Alabama - have an Alabama fishing license. check "outdooralabama.com/fishing" .... Poppy (aka Joe)
