License Free Fishing Days

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission provides license-free fishing days which 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. Visit the FWC website for further information.
