TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (970 WFLA/AP)- The first of four license-free fishing days is this Saturday.
Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced this week the new day, Saturday, when the requirement to have a recreational saltwater fishing license is waived. All other regulations such as seasons, size limits and bag limits still apply.
This is the first of four additional license-free fishing days that were added to the calendar earlier this year. The four new days, two saltwater and two freshwater, brings the total to eight license-free fishing days a year: Four saltwater and four freshwater.
November 30 will be an additional saltwater license-free fishing day, while Nov. 29 and Dec. 28 will be additional freshwater license-free days.
