Fish for free this Saturday

Florida - Have a hankering to go fishing? Saturday, October 12th would be a good day to give it a try, because the state is waiving saltwater license requirements. The license-free day applies to both visitors and residents.

In a release Governor Rick Scott said, "License free days serve as a great opportunity for families to enjoy the incredible fishing opportunities that Florida has to offer. This Saturday, families will have even more of an opportunity to head to the coast, enjoy time with their loved ones and catch some fish." 

This is the first of four additional license-free days that were added to the calendar earlier this year by the FWC, the Florida Legislature and the Governor. The addition of these four days, including two saltwater and two freshwater days, means a total of eight license-free fishing days a year: four saltwater and four freshwater.

In 2013, Nov. 30 will be an additional saltwater license-free fishing day and Nov. 29 and Dec. 28 will be additional freshwater license-free days.

All other saltwater fishing rules apply.
