Florida Saltwater License-Free Fishing Day


Many of you may have been waiting for a perfect time to get out and try your hand at fly fishing. Well, tomorrow is November 29th, a day which the state of Florida has given us a free day to fish without a recreational saltwater fishing license. This applies to residents and non-residents.

Florida already allows saltwater fishing (without a license) for shoreline areas which are accessible without the use of a boat or other means. On November 29, you will be able to fish all applicable saltwater by any means of access.

This saltwater waiver applies to any recreational harvest requiring a saltwater fishing license (e.g. crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, etc.). In addition, Snook and Spiny Lobster permits are not required.

For detailed information on Florida license-free fishing, visit the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on-line.
