Last year as a Non- Resident I purchased a Chesapeake Bay & Coastal Sport Boat License, and at that time I received a sticker for $50. After doing so I found that was the way to go as several of my friends could fish on my boat without obtaining an individual license. Yesterday I went to purchase the same boat license and learned after doing so that the sticker would be mailed to me and until that arrived, I could use the paper or receipt from the purchase. They also stated that if anyone that is a Non- Resident or unlicensed fisherman must complete a Maryland Saltwater Angler Registration online, which is free. This registration must be completed before they fish. I really do not understand the reason for this.
