The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Gov. Rick Scott said today that Friday will be a license-free freshwater fishing day, and Saturday will be a saltwater license-free fishing day.
There are eight license-free fishing days per year, where the requirement to have a recreational fishing license is waived for residents and visitors. All other fishing and boating rules and regulations still apply.
Dec. 28 will be the last freshwater license-free fishing day for 2013.
Beginning in 2014, all eight license-free fishing days will fall on the same weekend days from year to year, allowing potential anglers to plan fishing trips in advance and businesses and nonprofit groups to plan events around these fishing license holidays.
The recurring days will be:
* The first Saturday and Sunday in June
* The first Saturday in September
* The Saturday following Thanksgiving
* The first Saturday and Sunday in April
* The second Saturday and Sunday in June
