Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced two license-free fishing weekends in June. The first took place this past weekend for saltwater fishing and the second, a freshwater fishing weekend, is scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday for Florida residents and visitors.
“Florida is the fishing capital of the world,” Scott said in a press release. “As children get out of school for the summer break and more tourists visit our state, I encourage every family to take advantage of these weekends to enjoy Florida’s great outdoors with their loved ones.”
The weekends are among the eight total license-free fishing days the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers each year in the state. All bag limits, closed areas and size restrictions apply on those weekends. For more information, visit MyFWC.com/License.
