Floridians and visitors will be able to fish without license in the Sunshine State during five periods of time in 2021.
The first license-free freshwater fishing dates fall next week on April 3 and 4, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website.
“License-free fishing days provide an excellent opportunity for those who don’t yet have a fishing license to experience fishing, take youth fishing, or for avid anglers to introduce a friend to fishing without having to purchase a license,” FWC said on its website.
The full schedule is as follows according to the FWC website:
- April 3-4: License-free freshwater fishing
- June 12-13: License-free freshwater and saltwater fishing
- Sept. 4: License-free saltwater fishing
- Nov. 27: License-free saltwater fishing
These license-free fishing days apply to residents and non-residents.
All bag limits, seasons and size restrictions still apply on the license-free fishing day.
