Fish Without License This Weekend

The state is once again holding an event to promote the fishing industry.

This weekend and next weekend, residents and tourist will be able to fish without having a fishing license. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is sponsoring the no license weekends.

This weekend's event is for salt water fishing. Next weekend applies to freshwater fishing. All bag limits, seasons, and size restrictions are in effect.

These four license free fishing days fall near National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fishing and boating, which started June 1 and runs through June 8.
