Let's hope there is not going to be a saltwater license.

There should be a national recreational saltwater to support all the work done to protect and enhance the fisheries. Why should the entire populace pay to support our habits?

It seems to me that raising prices on permits and licenses is a bad way to raise money.

How about reducing the waste in the state let's start there. How about saving the few businesses left rather then see them leave for other states.

This nonsense about charging me for car taxes every year has to go too. Tax me when I buy a vehicle new or register it that's it.

Tolls,people don't like tolls. Remeber in the mid 80's when the toll were coming down. They came up with a so called "temporary tax". Well it's 2009 and that temp tax is still here.

Put a toll at the borders and not in the middle of the state.

fishing isn't that great in Ct to warrant any increase in license fees. They should stock more fish if they want more money.

I don't "get" the appeal of fishing.I like the outdoors,but baiting a hook and handling a slimy fish,then cleaning it,then hoping the pollution doesn't KILL you.Not my idea of fun.If I am hungry for a fish dinner,I will go to a restaurant.

I will not pay to fish from shore or from a boat in salt water . where does the state get the balls to ask a weekend fisherman to pay to fish from salt water .that is bullcrap. the state of connecticut can piss off. i dont take 50 tons of fish from the ocean , i take a fish . and to pay for the fish is bull , what else are they going to do , thats why everyone hates this state, charge you for everything god put the fish in the ocean. not the state of connecticut, SO TO ALL THE SHORE FISHERMAN AND THE BOAT FISHERMAN THAT TAKE A FISH FISH ON . GOD IS ON OUR SIDE . NOT THE STAE OF CONNECTICUT . FISH ON

People take time to write about fishing. Months ago I posted info on ocean state job lot selling Paseo toilet paper. World wildlife fund has a massive campaign to stop the import of this product. It comes from a forest where endagered tigers live.They are dying at a rapid rate, since their land is being taken from them. Many stores I have contacted went on to educate themselves and have pulled this product. Ocean state won't even answer me. There was not one response to my post. People, really?? Fishing wins over endagered animals?? Something is wrong here.
