Are Virginia boat licenses good in Maryland? Seems big fish are still north.

Answer to my own question

Chesapeake Bay and Seaside - Anglers with saltwater licenses from either Virginia or Maryland may fish in any portion of the Chesapeake Bay, or any of the saltwater reaches of its tributary rivers, as well as seaside bays and creeks and the Atlantic Ocean where a Virginia saltwater license is required. Virginia licenses honored include: 1) individual annual licenses; 2) individual temporary licenses; 3) private boat licenses covering all persons fishing on the boat; 4) annual licenses for charter boats, headboats, and partyboats; and 5) annual licenses for rental boats.

Just remember the different size limits in the Md waters vs. VA waters.

You can abide by MD regulations while in MD, and carry the fish caught in MD through VA waters, but the second you drop a line in VA waters, your fish better be VA legal. (same thing with ocean v bay fish)

I'm going to sit tight and wait for em to come to me!! (hopefully)
