Florida requires an annual license for anyone over age 16 to enjoy fresh or saltwater fishing.

But for a few days each year, the license fee is waived and everyone can fish for free.

On Saturday, June 1 saltwater fishing will be allowed for free for anyone who wishes to participate.

And on Saturday, June 8 the same applies to freshwater fishing.

The annual fee is normally around $17.
