SENIOR FISHING LICENSE

I thought the senior lifetime fishing license was free but when I went online they want $51.90. The senior annual is $11.90. I knew I had to purchase the stamps but thought the license itself was free. Is this a one time fee? Anyone know anything about this?

If I'm reading correctly, I have to purchase the license for $51.90, a one time purchase of a Lake Erie stamp for $9.90, but have to buy the trout stamp every year (or throw a multi-year one on there).

The senior license is a one time fee, good for however long you live. Stamps can be purchased yearly or for 5 years for the trout stamp, but i'm not sure about the Erie stamp. I got mine 3 years ago; lifetime senior, 5 year trout/salmon, but at that time I only got a one year Erie stamp.

Liberals never believe what they're doing is wrong. They only believe they've not been allowed to do enough of it to make it work!

Pike Predator 2, Got mine back in 2015. Bought the lifetime $51.90 plus the Erie Stamp for $9.90. Both are one time fees for life. At that time I got a ten year trout stamp figuring I'm not sure I'll still be able to stand in a creek and fly fish when I'm 75 years old. Even worse, I may not remember how to get home after a day on the creek!   Lou

I got mine a while ago, with the combo stamp, both good for life.  They grandfathered anyone who bought the Senior lifetime/ combo permit before Jan. 1, 2015.

BTW BT, there is something free in PA.  A disabled veteran who is a resident of PA and

 
1) Has a disability incurred in any war or armed conflict consisting of
(a) loss of one or more limbs;
(b) loss of use of one or more limbs; or
(c) total blindness.
OR
(2) Is 60 to 99% disabled as certified by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

is qualified to receive a free PA fishing license, and any necessary stamps.

I bought mine in 2009 therefore I'm grandfathered and never have to pay for another trout stamp or Erie permit.  I can understand though why the rules were changed considering how many people turn 65 years old every day.  There would be an even bigger loss of PFBC revenue if all the seniors never had to buy any of the stamps/permits again.

I think a disabled Veteran paid plenty for his or her "FREE LICENSE"

No matter how you slice it, it's a hellava good deal. Have you been to the movies lately? Even on senior day, two tickets, a small popcorn and drink costs you over $20.00.

I pay $247.00 a month with Comcast.  Sucks.  Granted we have four TV's but only one has the big box. That darn cable bill is my biggest monthly bill next to my property taxes.  Where I live in York there are no other cable providers.  So Comcast has a monopoly.

Why is the cable bill so much? Does it include other things like internet service?
 
In CA, I have Direct TV and it's $80/mo. My internet is thru AT&T and that's $50/mo.
 
In MT, I have no TV, but have Hughnet for internet service. I think it's $60/mo. 
 
There is no way in hell I would ever pay $247/mo., even if it included cable, phone, and internet service.

For Comcast, do Roku box for TVs that you don’t use all of the time. $30 one time charge, instead of $10 per month. $10 for a universal remote to not need a separate to turn the tv on. Once you get used to (1-2 days), they are just as easy to control as regular box.

For those with Fios in market. Do the every 2-3 year shuffle. It is a hassle, but saves a bunch.

I should of mentioned that sum includes cable Internet service and my landline.  If it was up to me I would never have the cable box (provides the HD channels) and I would drop service to an old cathode ray tube set we rarely watch.  But my wife seems to think she has to have those HD channels.  I rarely watch commercial TV.  I have the Roku box on the set in my den and pretty much only watch Netflix.

If it was up to me I would cancel the TV portion of the cable service and the land line. Just keep the Internet portion. But to keep the peace with my wife I continue to fork up that much money.  A few months ago I told her to start paying $50 a month or I was going to cancel the service.

If you have the Roku box, get the Comcast beta app. It allows you to use the Roku basically as your cable box. Get rid of that box and save $10 per month. Only drawbacks are needing two remotes, unless you buy an Universal remote, and cant punch in numbers to change the channels. You need to scroll through. Hockey and other high paced sports will pixelate at times too. It broadcasts in HD.

Thanks, We have two remotes now anyway on the big set my wife watches.  As far as sports programs pixelating I could care less...I don't watch any sports programs. Once in a while I'll watch MMA.  I'm going to drop cable TV service on the set in my den and drop the cathode tube set we never watch. That should bring the bill down at least $20 per month.  Any of you guys have Dish or any other satellite providers? Any significant issues with it?

I get to fish 3-4 days a week at my cabin on the WB of the Delaware, go to Montana every year for 2 weeks, and pretty much buy whatever I want for fishing and fly tying.  How many guys can say their wife suggested to buy a cabin on a trout river? Then was okay when I bought a Hyde drift boat and then a year later when I bought a Lowe bass boat with a 40 horsepower jet. I shouldn't complain to loudly.

I guess it was me.... because I said nothing is free in Pa. I think if we made it to 65 that's the least Pa could do.lol.  I bought a hunting licence for 53 years,fishing for 49...not counting,bear,doe,migratory Bird,duck stamp,and several dog tags for my hunting dog. lol.  Getting all these reduced fees is such a bonus......I don't know what to do with all that extra money.......lol I never complained about spending the money,because that was my fun and still is..... I'm heading to PI tomorrow. First trip for perch....
