Governor Scott calls tourists to license-free fishing weekendStaff writer ▼ | June 4, 2016
Florida Governor Rick Scott announced that June 4 and 5 will be a license-free saltwater fishing weekend, and June 11 and 12 will be a license-free freshwater fishing weekend for Florida residents and visitors.
Free time "Florida is the fishing capital of the world"
“As children get out of school for the summer break and more tourists visit our state, I encourage every family to take advantage of these weekends to enjoy Florida’s great outdoors with their loved ones.”
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting these four license-free fishing days near National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fishing and boating.
The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation’s website offers information on events sponsored by businesses and communities during National Fishing and Boating Week, as well as locating fishing sites, identifying recreational species and finding fishing tips. ■
