TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Governor Rick Scott announced four license-free fishing days in June for Florida residents and visitors.

The weekends include:

  • Saturday, June 6 - Sunday, June 7 (saltwater recreational fishing license requirement will be waived)
  • Saturday, June 13 - Sunday, June 14 (freshwater recreational fishing license requirement will be waived)

"This summer, we're excited to make it easier for families to enjoy the world class fishing our state has to offer. Florida is the fishing capital of the world and one of the many reasons we welcomed a record 98.9 million visitors to the Sunshine State last year. I look forward to fishing with my grandsons this summer, and I hope everyone takes advantage of license-free fishing this month," said Governor Rick Scott.

The four days in June are a part of the eight total license-free fishing days the FWC offers each year. All bag limits, seasons and size restrictions apply on these dates.
