license confusion for Lake Michigan or other shared Waters

Recommended Posts

Can you moor your boat on Wisconsin harbors and fish lake Michigan with a Michigan fishing license?

I have Michigan License and so do one of my buddies and we fish Lake Michigan from Door County. We have been buying WI. License and my buddy asked  why we had to buy a license for WI if we have a MI. License? I had assumed that if you harvest fish you need a license for the state you launch your boat from but cant get confirmation on that. If you can fish shared waters with one state license in another state can you fish off the docks for perch and such?

I tried searching for the answer but couldn't find anything.
