Free fishing days in Florida coming up soon

Published:   |   Updated: May 28, 2013 at 09:53 AM

Florida requires an annual license for anyone over age 16 to enjoy fresh or saltwater fishing.

But for a few days each year, the license fee is waived and everyone can fish for free.

On Saturday (June 1), saltwater fishing will be allowed for free for anyone who wishes to participate.

And on June 8 the same applies to freshwater fishing.

The annual fee is normally around $17.
