Do you like to fish?
Florida's Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission has announced four days this year that people in Florida can fish without having a license.
“Fishing is a great way to enjoy Florida’s beautiful outdoors, great weather and a wonderful day with family and friends,” said Florida Governor Rick Scott. “License-free fishing days are the perfect opportunity to discover the fun and excitement of fishing and Florida’s great outdoors.”
License-free fishing days are great opportunities to introduce friends to fishing, or to give fishing a try yourself.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) spread out the opportunities this year, so more people will be able to head for their favorite lakes and rivers or saltwater destinations on the designated four days.
You won’t need a recreational fishing license on the special days listed below.
The license-free fishing designation applies only to recreational fishing, not commercial. All other bag limit, season and size restrictions apply on these dates.
To make your free fishing day successful, check out MyFWC.com/Fishing for fishing tips, locations and rules.
This is a great opportunity to teach someone to fish!!!
Thanks for sharing! I want to get one of the five year licenses.
