Free-fishing weekends return

- Anglers in Florida can take advantage of license-free fishing both this weekend and next.

Tomorrow and Sunday, no license is required to go saltwater fishing.

Next weekend, June 9 and 10, you can go freshwater fishing without a license.

You still need to follow size and limit regulations. 

"We have a lot of species that you can't find elsewhere, here in Florida,” offered Amanda Nalley of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “It's a great opportunity to get out and to experience that and try some Florida fishing first-hand."

If you enjoy your free fishing experience, keep in mind an annual license for fresh or saltwater fishing starts at $17 for Florida residents.
