TAMPA, Fla. - This weekend, June 4 and 5, is one of the designated license-free saltwater fishing weekends for Florida residents and visitors.
The license-free days in June are near National Fishing and Boating week and hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commision.
Next weekend, June 11 and 12, will be a license-free freshwater fishing weekend.
There are eight license-free fishing days a year offered by the FWC. "As children get out of school for the summer break and more tourists visit our state, I encourage every family to take advantage of these weekends to enjoy Florida’s great outdoors with their loved ones,” said Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
The other license-free days for 2016 are:
Freshwater: Second Saturday and Sunday in June
Saltwater: First Saturday in September. Saturday following Thanksgiving
