The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has announced two license-free weekends to go fishing.

  • June 4-5 for saltwater
  • June 11-12 for freshwater

License-free fishing days provide a fun opportunity for new anglers to try fishing for the first time or experienced anglers to introduce a friend or family member to a new hobby. 

The fishing license requirements are waived for all recreational anglers during these dates but all other rules including seasons, bag and size limits still apply, according to FWC.

The saltwater waiver applies to any recreational activity requiring a saltwater fishing license (e.g., crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, etc.), whether fishing from shore or a boat.
