sustinence/nonsport fishing

  I have heard and would like to confirm, fishing for food does NOT require a fishing liscence. 

any feedback on this issue would be greatly appreciated

so far, it is a native or tribal exemption

Also most states do not require a license for children and for seniors (70+) but that varies by state. Go to your states DNR site for the rules.

You have to prove to the state that the game you are going after is the only way you can eat. Usually it only applies to people who are living in the bush with no access to a food store, or natives. Won't fly with the game warden if you are fishing with a $500 setup and you live down the road from walmart.
