The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering a license-free freshwater fishing weekend this Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2.
Free fishing days provide an excellent opportunity for parents who don’t yet have licenses to take youth fishing, or avid anglers to introduce a friend to fishing without having to purchase a license. On these days, the fishing license requirement is waived for all recreational anglers (residents and non-residents). All other rules (e.g., seasons, bag and size limits) apply. The first Saturday and Sunday in April are license-free freshwater days. For more information, visit http://myfwc.com/license/recreational/do-i-need-a-license/free-fishing/.
