Default gulf pier fishing permit

Coming down to Gulf Shores next weekend and was wanting to know if getting a daily fishing permit on the pier is enough or if I will need to get an Alabama State fishing license also?

That's correct. A saltwater license will be required of everyone.

I also noticed that there is "No cooking of pier". I guess that means you can cook on the pier as long as you don't cook the pier in the process.

So there going to have license check for everyoneupon entering? That will force you to have it on you at all times anyway.

Well...Atleast this will take some fishing pressure off of other areas especially during tourist season.

That won't work, they are not allowing alcohol. May have to go for the Italian dressing instead.
