Free Fishing Days (License-free saltwater days)

  • When: Saturday, November 26, 2022 - All Day Event
  • Location: FL
  • Cost: Free

Free fishing days 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 saltwater waiver applies to any recreational harvest requiring a saltwater fishing license (e.g., crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, etc.) as well as fishing from shore or a boat. A snook or spiny lobster permit are not required on these days. License-free saltwater days * First consecutive Saturday and Sunday in June * First Saturday in September * Saturday following Thanksgiving
