Fishing Licenses & Regulations
In 2009, the South Carolina legislature changed our state's saltwater fishing regulations by requiring that all shore-based fishermen, residents and tourists alike, must buy a South Carolina saltwater fishing license. Up until then only boat fishermen were required to have a license. In a nutshell the new law reads, "This act requires all individuals (16 and over) to have a saltwater recreational fishing license when harvesting marine resources, including finfish, oysters, clams, shrimp and crab."

If you are fishing on a licensed pier or with a licensed charter captain, you are covered under their permit. You don't need a license if you are crabbing with 3 or less drop nets, fold up traps or hand lines. Fishermen need a license to crab with a crab trap or pot.

The minimum fine for not having a SC Saltwater Fishing License is $160 and each fisherman could be required to post a cash bond or go to jail. The maximum fine is more than $1,000. Saltwater fishing areas includes the beaches, all saltwater lagoons including those found in Palmetto Dunes and Sea Pines, public boat landings, and public and private docks and piers.

Buying a Fishing License


Fishing licenses can be purchased 24/7 by phone at 1.866.714.3611 or online at dnr.sc.gov.

Getting a fishing license process is easy and inexpensive. An annual resident South Carolina saltwater fishing license is only $10 (14 day license for a SC resident license is $5). A non-resident can purchase a 14 day saltwater fishing license for $11 ($35 for the year).
