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 Sunday, Sept. 1 saltwater fishing will be allowed for free for anyone who wishes to participate.
The saltwater waiver applies to any recreational activity requiring a saltwater fishing license including crabbing, scalloping, etc. as well as fishing from shore or from a boat.
The annual fee is normally around $17.
