Hey Hunters

Not so long ago i lost all my fishing permits. Angling, general bait, license to skip vessel. Although these were still valid the fisheries board in Umbilo could not help me. Instead asked me to phone Cape Town  were all my permits were picked up on the system. If it could be picked up on the system, why don't parki's carry lap tops?They could not issue me with new ones untils i had paid R32(i think it was) per permit to re-issue. The cherry on top is when the lady said it will take three weeks before i got it. i explained to her that i wanted to fish now, not three weeks time. She could not help me. :( I had to buy all my permits again.

 

IS THIS SYSTEM FAIR TO THOSE OF US THAT RELIGIOUSLY  BUY OUR PERMITS ?

I love to know what you think......

Hey Zak,

It's no longer called cracker license. It's now again General bait license. You can buy at almost any post office or fisheries board. The fisheries board is in Umbilo(the same place where the licensing offices are).

I lost track of the price since it goes up every year without fail.

 

Cheers.....

Hey Harry

Horrible exprience but we rather be safe than sorry so please heres a a suggestion whenever you buy any lience try to photocopy them so if it gets lost you still have proof but i understand your frustration i also feel that thier should be better service with regards to the Parks Board there is a lot of loop holes in that feild unfortunately innonecent people bear the brunt.:cool:

;) Hi Guys !

I'm not sure about this really ... I've lost a good few angling permits in the past and was unable to accquire a duplicate ...... Not on considering the fees.

I'm pretty sure that a photocopy is not acceptable as well when asked to produce. My opinion is that a card type permit (similar to the driving license) should be introduced that can be renewed every five years instead of the current type.

What do you think ?

Regards,

Jonah

Hey Guys,

 

Good suggestions but photocopies are not allowed. I personally asked the parks board on that one.

 

So guys were does it leave us?????

Harry,

I carry a certified copy and have never had a problem with the Parkie`s.

What I did is colour photo-copy and laminate and I keep one on my boat ,one in my rock & surf bag,one in my off-shore bag ,one in my drop shot bag and the original in my car.

Never had a problem so far,but the card type licence is a great idea .

The problem is the law is not enforced as it should be which is unfair to those who buy the licences .My licences cost a arm and a leg as I buy boat,angling,general bait,cast net and crayfish licences never mind having to pay club membership and renewing your boat licence every year (who said fishing was cheap)

Brett

Hi guys. I spoke to the people of parks board and established that you can you can make copies of your licenses and tave it to the local police station to have it certified. You can then carry the copies with you and keep the originals in a safe place at your home. I know what it feels like to buy new permits all round as my permits flew away with the wind while fishing. I've got two facets off fishing that I practice and that involves two kits and i often forgot to change the permits between the kits and often got into trouble. Now I got copies in both my kits and the originals at home. i think it is better to buy the permits, which cost a mere R60, than losing my tackle which is in the range of R8000. Dup.
