I am new to the HMS permits. So if I fish from late May to early June do I need two permits? Also what are the chances of catching a YFT in the Keys during that time of year. If I understand it correctly I do not need the permit for blackfin. Thanks

Since the boat is in my brother's name, he will get this HMS rec permit for his boat.

Do I need any other permits/licenses to fish for tuna or other pelagic species off of VA coast?

Thanks,
Kg

Kg, the HMS permit covers all pelagic species(tuna, billfish etc.). As long as the boat has the permit you are good to go.

I almost bought mine but the website this morning says they are good through May 31, 2006. This looks like it expires in 30 days and I would need a new one after that?

"ATLANTIC HMS ANGLING HANDLINE ROD AND REEL
I fully understand the consequences of my choice of vessel permit category. I have also read and understand the 10-day category change restriction.

All private vessel owners/operators recreationally fishing for and/or retaining regulated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (Atlantic tunas, sharks, swordfish and billfish) for personal use in the Atlantic Ocean, including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, must obtain an Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Angling permit. 2005 Atlantic HMS Angling permits cost $22.00 and will be valid from the date of issuance through May 31, 2006

Anyone know if you need to do a renewal or a new permit application to go from an angling permit to a charter/head boat permit???
Last year I I found out the hard way that once you renew an angling permit, they won't let you change the permit in the same year.
Thanks

I found on the NMFS website that you can change your category to Charter/Headboat when you renew. Also noticed it says if you hold a license (OUPV for example) you must have a Charter/Headboat permit.

Well, my question is this:

I am taking my paperwork to the Baltimore Coast Guard tomorrow for my OUPV license but as everyone already knows, it could take a couple months to receive my actual captains license. If I renew my angling permit now, then when I finally receive my license I can't change it to a Charter/Headboat permit. If I have paying passengers anytime during the 2006 permit season I will not be able to retain tuna or other HMS. Guess I will call NMFS and try to get a copy of the complete regs from the Federal Register to be sure before I renew.


The link below is to the NMFS permit "download" application. I did not see any of this mentioned in the on-line application/renewal page:

I went on the NMF site and sent an e/mail to them asking this question.
I got a call today and every thing was explained to me and we did the permit switch over the phone
Nice people there!!!
