Bass Panfish

So how does fishing work in california?

Ok so I wana start fishing with my little brother he is 11. Does he need a fishing license? I know I need one. But when I catch the fish can I take them home? Or do I need tags? I live in southern California any spots u recommend? For beginners and any tips thanks?

If you're 15 or under you don't need a license, so your brother doesn't need one. His catch doesn't count against anyone's limit but his own (I don't know where Chris got that "fact" -- it may be true in some states, but not in California.) If the fish you catch are legal size and a limit or less, you can take them home. But number and size limits vary by species, and sometimes by where you're fishing, so there's no way to put them all here. You can get the regulations off the DFG website ( http://www.dfg.ca.gov/Fishing/ ) or pick up booklets for free at most tackle shops. There are two sets of regulations, one for freshwater and one for the ocean.

Anyway, in southern California, you have the ocean (piers, partyboats), as well as a number of reservoirs and lakes, warmwater fisheries in the lowland lakes (bass, panfish, etc.) and cooler water stuff in the mountains (trout). It all depends how far you can drive and how much you can spend.
