To help promote proper life jacket use, the boat show is working with the Sea Tow Foundation to provide life jackets while you’re attending the boat show, at no cost! Life jacket loaner stations will be stationed in front of the docks at this year’s show for you to use before walking the docks and boarding the hundreds of boats on display in the water. Life jackets will be available in infant, child, youth and adult sizes. Volunteer staff will help you choose the right size and provide safety information about the importance of wearing a life jacket when on or around boats. You can return the life jackets at the loaner stations or at designated boxes around the show.
Life jacket loaner stations are set up by the Sea Tow Foundation in partnership with Onyx Outdoors. Learn more at www.boatingsafety.com.

A recreational fishing license is a requirement for anglers in every state. While sport fishing license requirements differ by state, they are all based on protecting endangered species, environments and anglers. Thus, anglers must obtain a recreational fishing license if they are fishing for sport in the United States. Additionally, they should be familiar with specific types of licenses such as recreational saltwater licenses or licenses for freshwater areas.
Because a game and fish fishing license enables anglers to fish in public and some private waters in each U.S. state, they must understand how to acquire and maintain their licenses. For instance, a temporary fishing license can cost from a few dollars to $100. However, annual and lifetime licenses are also issues in several states. To learn more about a license’s eligibility requirements, types and costs, read the sections below.
