TAMPA, Fla. - Twice a year, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission lets residents and non-residents fish in salt and freshwater without a license and the second license-free weekend is coming up.
On the first consecutive Saturday and Sunday in June, which is June 6 and 7, 2020, anyone can fish in salt waterways without having to purchase a license.
On the second consecutive Saturday and Sunday in June, which is June 13 and 14, 2020, anyone can fish in fresh waterways without having to purchase a license.
FWC says the license-free program gives everyone a chance to give fishing a try. Crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, and fishing for snook or spiny lobster are all included on the license-free days.
Rules regarding seasons, bag, and size limits still apply.
