Hi, all! I have started to fish off a kayak recently, mostly in the ocean, but now want to switch to the lakes.

My head is spinning as I am reading different rules and regulations pages and trying to figure out what I need to go fish in lakes here in NJ.

Can anyone help figuring this out?

My equipment includes:

1. An SUV that would need to be parked while fishing.
2. 2012 Hobie Outback (transported on the roof of my SUV)

Obviously, I know to get a fishing license, but there are also all sorts of parking/launching/tresspassing permits that I might require. Not clear at all.

Any help is most appreciated!

Your freshwater license usually covers everything you need to park and fish most lakes in NJ. A few lakes have townships permits to fish such as Aclyon Lake in Pitman and Mirror Lake in Browns Mills.
Here is a link for NJ Fish and Wildlife for more info.

Not sure about your area, but here in Indiana any body of water that is in a DNR state park or water that is maintained by the DNR, requires a $5 annual non- motorized watercraft sticker that is good though the whole state.
