From DFG 2005 Fishing regulations:

Possession and Display of License

Section 700. (Title 14, California Code of Regulations). (a) Display of Sport Fishing License: Every person, while engaged in taking any fish, amphibian or reptile, shall display their valid sport fishing license by attaching it to their outer clothing at or above the waistline so that is is plainly visible, except when diving as provided in Section 7145 of the Fish and Game Code.

Persons diving from a boat or shore may have their license on the boat or within 500 yards of shore, respectively (see Fish and Game Code Section 7145).

*The law now provides for a minimum $100 fine for fishing without a license.

A 1-day permit is $10.75. Do the math......
