The Story

Capt. Mike Goodwine

In 2017, Capt. Mike Goodwine of Blackneck Adventures had the idea to create a redfish license plate while waiting to renew his license at the DMV. He went to graphic designer Jesse Starr, and together, came up with a very appealing design.

Capt. Mike then contacted Coastal Conservation Association Florida (CCA Florida), a statewide 501c3 advocacy group focused on the conservation and enhancement of Florida’s marine resources, to partner on the license plate and help get it passed through the Florida Legislature.

The Signing by Gov. Ron DeSantis

Once the design was complete, CCA Florida’s advocacy team worked to find sponsors to initiate license plate bill. In 2018, Sen. George Gainer from Bay County and Rep. Chris Latvala from Pinellas County carried the CCA Florida bill through the legislation and initiated the approval process. The following year, Rep. James “J.W.” Grant and Sen. Aaron Bean from Hillsborough and Duval counties, respectively, continued carrying the bill in their respective houses. Then, on March 13, 2020, the bill was unanimously passed by the Legislature, and on September 19 that year, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed HB 1135 establishing the bill as law and going into effect October 16.

Special thanks to Rep. James “J.W.”Grant and Sen. Aaron Bean for their support and helping advance the “Conserve Florida’s Fisheries” license plate.
