TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – Today is the last day for Florida residents and visitors to take advantage of the no fishing license required for saltwater fishing, implemented by Governor Rick Scott on Friday. 

Next weekend, June 9-10, will also be a license-free freshwater fishing weekend for Florida residents and visitors.

Fishing licenses are not required on these weekends.

“Florida is known as the Fishing Capital of the World, and taking advantage of these license-free fishing weekends is the perfect opportunity for Floridians and their families to get outdoors,” said Gov. Rick Scott.

Governor Rick Scott announced on Friday that June 2-3 will be a license-free saltwater fishing weekend.

“I appreciate the hard work of FWC to ensure that Florida remains the Fishing Capital of the World.”

“Summertime in the Sunshine State is great for getting on or near the water,” said Bo Rivard, Chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

“I hope the different opportunities to fish license-free during the next two weekends will inspire new anglers to give it a try. Established anglers, I encourage you to take a friend or family member out and introduce them to the Fishing Capital of the World!”

FWC offers eight total license-free fishing days each year. Bag limits, closed areas and size restrictions apply on these days.
