    I think I've lost this bet but I'll ask the experts here to help me pull a potential save! 

    I maintain that one does not need a coast guard license (Master of Vessels) to be properly licensed as a fishing guide for less than 6 passengers in inland waters NOT navigable to the sea (meaning lakes and reservoirs).   However, I noticed in my seach of this site that although I can't find this spelled out specifically, I have found that the Master of Vessels application implies that I'm wrong.   Or is inland water licensing requirements including USCG licensing left up to the individual states??   Hope you can help.....if not, thanks anyway!!  Annie

    This depends if you're charging moneys for the operation of the vessel. For example, I once worked for a harbor taxi company. I could drive the CG inspected vessel, even with passengers, as long as it didn't have anyone who paid to be on the boat, which then requires the MMD. This allowed me to refuel the boat or pick up new captains from different docks who were coming on duty.
