NC Standard Commercial fishing license, P-sticker for land and sell , Dockside commercial safety inspection by USCG, Charterboat Headboat HMS Permit. SOLAS approved Liferaft, Class 1 EPIRB with hydostatic release, Labeled throw ring with reflective tape, vessel name and 50 ft. of floating line, Commercial sized registration numbers on vessel, Offshore SOLAS approved lifevests with strobes. SOLAS A flare pack with parachute flares, smoke and signal flares,survival suits depending on where you fish , and more that I am forgetting I am sure.

The big thing is if you don't have the commercial dockside inspection placard with serial number, when you get stopped by the coast guard, which you most likely will, they will find something wrong. I got stopped no less than 4 times last year, with a commercial dockside inspection less than a couple months old.

The best thing to do is call the coast guard, and marine fisheries and make sure you have everything. They are and will be patrolling vigorously.

State license to sell, federal HMS license, safetyequip-EPIRB, Coast guard approved life raft , commercial lifejackets, Commercial flare kit. Immersion suits needed if fishing North of cold water line. Then you need the tackle after that!
