Take advantage of license-free fishing
Saturday for taking advantage of the upcoming license-free fishing day,
in Florida s fresh waters
Saturday April 7, in Florida are almost endless. That s because people of all ages can cast
their lines into 3 million acres of lakes, ponds and reservoirs and 12,000 miles of fishable
rivers, streams and canals.
The hardest part might be picking your destination.
These abundant resources, coupled with responsible freshwater fish management, are why
Florida is known as the “Fishing Capital of the World.”
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) scheduled the
first of four license-free recreational fishing days on this holiday weekend so more people
will have the chance to get out and try their luck. Plus, this weekend coincides with a pro-
ductive freshwater fishing period, when the weather is usually pleasant. Many of Florida s
recreational sport fishes, such as black bass, bluegill and redear sunfish, move into the shal-
lows to spawn during spring, making them more available for anglers to catch.
Besides enjoying the fun of reeling in a fish, people find that recreational fishing is
a good motivator to enjoy the great outdoors. In fact, fishing is a prime reason lots of folks
get outside in the first place.
Fishing is a low-cost, wholesome form of entertainment, which is why the FWC
offers four days when a recreational fishing license is not needed. The FWC also made June
2 and Sept. 1 license-free saltwater fishing days and set June 9 as the second license-free
freshwater fishing day. These days coincide with a holiday weekend, National Fishing and
Boating Week or open-harvest seasons for popular bay scallops, lobster and king mackerel.
All other bag limit, season and size restrictions apply on these dates for recreational, not
