The next 2 weekends are great weekends, to get outdoors and go fishing.
Florida’s "license-free" fishing days happen this weekend, which means tor hose who don’t have a fishing license, you can go saltwater fishing this Saturday, June 6th and Sunday, June 7th.
Then.... Next weekend, June 13th and 14th, you can go freshwater fishing without a license.
The saltwater waiver covers any recreational harvest that would require a saltwater fishing license, such as crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, etc. You’ll still need to follow the rules and bag and size limits.
The FWC offers eight license-free fishing days each year, but residents can get an annual license for $17.
Licenses and permits are always available online at: www.GoOutdoorsFlorida.com in person at a license agent or tax collector’s office or by calling toll-free 888-FISH-FLORIDA (888-347-4356).
