“Take that with you. You can print out charts and have all of the information you need to know.” Another suggestion from FWC is if you feel intimidated or don’t know enough to try, “oftentimes the folks at the tackle shop are really helpful,” Nalley said. “They can give you the right knowledge, the right equipment to make sure you have a successful day.” If you do take advantage of the opportunity and get hooked on fishing and want a license, go to and click “Do I Need One?” and “Free Fishing Days.” And mark your calendars for Sept. 6 and Nov. 29, which have also been designated license-free saltwater fishing days. And April 4 and 5 have been designated as a license-free freshwater fishing weekend. For more information

Today, Governor Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced Floridians and visitors will be able to fish without a saltwater recreational fishing license on June 7 and 8 and freshwater recreational fishing license on June 14 and 15. Governor Scott said, Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World, and fishing is an economic engine for our state, providing jobs from Pensacola to the Keys. These designated license-free fishing days are a great opportunity for Floridians to celebrate summer with their families and loved ones, enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors, cast a line and get hooked on fishing. We hope visitors and residents alike will be able to join in the excitement of Floridas saltwater and freshwater fishing this year by participating in one of our license-free fishing days, said FWC Chairman Richard Corbett. This is an excellent opportunity to share the fun and togetherness of a fishing trip with the entire family or to introduce someone to a lifelong hobby of fishing. These four license-free fishing days fall near National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fishing and boating, which started June 1 and runs through June 8. The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundations website is a place to learn about events sponsored by businesses and communities during National Fishing and Boating Week, as well as locating fishing sites, identifying recreational species and finding fishing tips. In conjunction with National Fishing and Boating Week and FWCs license-free event is the first-ever KeepAmericaFishing Day on June 7. For more information
