Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have announced four additional license-free fishing days.
Florida annually offers four days on which the recreational fishing license requirement is waived for residents and visitors. Saltwater license-free fishing days this year were June 1 and Sept. 1; freshwater days were April 6 and June 8.
During its Sept. 5 meeting, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission added four more license-free fishing days to the calendar; the Florida Legislature approved this increase earlier this year. Additional saltwater license-free fishing days will be Oct. 12 and Nov. 30. Additional freshwater license-free days will be Nov. 29 and Dec. 28.
