I have been reading Alabama fishing rules on line, and it is a little confusing, as far as saltwater and fresh water licenses. I think that I may need both with some of the places that i will fish ?. I see a saltwater license and a fresh water license, do they have a combo license that covers both ?, I don't see one. or do I just have to buy one of each ?

I understand the Florida license, I just need a saltwater and i should be good to go.

Thanks
Kevin

Basically, if you are south of I-10 (actually, US 90 is the line) in Mobile Bay, you only need the saltwater license.

Where it is really confusing me is like in Perdido Bay, there are several Rivers that feed it, how far up them can I go and be legal with a saltwater licence.
And in Mobile bay on the East side, how far up those rivers can i go ?. is 90 the line for that too ?.

I don't plan on keeping any fresh water fish.

Thanks

Basically, you can't go very deep into Perdido river, legally. It cuts off right at the mouth IIRC.

But it is marked right ?

at-least that is how i understood the post above.

Thanks

Do you mean marked, as in actually out on the water or on the map above? I haven't fished the area, but I seriously doubt the boundary it's physically marked on the water.

Perdido River has a very definitive mouth (link below). Imagine a line running from the southern point to the other side. Well, actually to the state line.

Sorry, but I am confused, the State line basically goes up the center of the Perdido river. on the Florida side from what I understand all I need is a saltwater license, as long as I am not keeping fresh water fish.
But if I understand what you are saying ?, I need a fresh water license if I am fishing the Alabama side, even if I am only fishing for saltwater fish ?.

Like SAS said, that's correct.

Just buy both salt and fresh in Fla and Al, then you'll be safe! And it'll help out our economy!

:D lol If you think your economy bad, you should live in Michigan.
My Business is down over 25% from what it was 4 years ago.
I may buy 2 Alabama licenses, but one Florida will do, at almost $50.00 each that is enough of a donation to the States.
But I bet that Sam's or Top Gun will happy to see me :yes:.
