The sale of fishing licenses directly funds the protection and enhancement of Tennessee’s public boat ramps, aquatic environments, and fish populations. It also protects you from being fined, having your gear confiscated, and potentially losing your fishing privileges in all 50 states.
Although this particular public service announcement only directly applies to those fishing in the state of Tennessee, the message echoes true for those fishing in every other state too. Also important to note that just because you have a fishing license in one state, that does not mean it is valid in another state.
Please check to make sure you’re in compliance with all rules and regulations prior to hitting the water.
And as always… Please fish responsibly and leave the whiskey at the dock.
If you’re looking for some music to get you fired up to rip some lips this summer, then look no further, turn up the volume, and enjoy Justin’s classic fishing song “Bait A Hook.”
(Great song, but it could have worked without the sushi insult. Someone had to catch those fish too. And sushi goes HARD.)
“He can’t even bait a hook He can’t even skin a buck He don’t know who Jack Daniels is Ain’t ever drove a truck Knows how to throw out a line But not the kind in a Field and Stream book No darling I ain’t even worried you’ll come running back He can’t even bait a hook”
