What’s about two feet long, costs between $2.50 and several hundred dollars and often gets forgotten this time of year?
A new Louisiana fishing license, of course.
Okay, maybe they aren’t two feet long, but if you get a combo with fishing and hunting with turkey tags and everything else, it almost takes longer to fold up to fit a wallet than a load of fresh laundry. And at $2.50 for a bank fishing license to up to $200 or more for the right combo, they can get pricey.
But here’s the most important deal. Unless you bought your license in the last couple of weeks, it’s about as good as a lie detector test on Hillary Clinton. Louisiana fishing licenses expire on June 30 each year and while you sometimes get a couple days grace period, that’s about it.
Here’s the deal. Check your license. If you haven’t gotten a new 2016-17 license, get one. And if you are going early in the morning and can’t get to the store, you can buy one on line (most of the time) by going to the site below and clicking on the appropriate box.
Oops. Yes, mine ran out, too…
