Free Fishing Days 2019: You can fish in Florida without a license on these days

If you’ve ever wanted to try fishing, you should definitely take advantage of this year’s free fishing days.

Every year, in celebration of National Fishing and Boating Week — which is June 1-9 this year — states offers free fishing days < /span> , where you can fish on public bodies of water without a fishing license.

This year’s free fishing days aren’t all during National Fishing and Boating Week. For example, Florida offers multiple free-fishing options on both freshwater and saltwater at different times throughout the year.

Check out the full list below to see when the Sunshine State is offering free days:

  • Saltwater
    • June 1 and 2, 2019. (First Saturday and Sunday in June.)
    • Sept. 7, 2019. (First Saturday in September.)
    • Nov. 30, 2019. (Saturday following Thanksgiving.)
  • Freshwater
    • April 6 and 7, 2019. (First Saturday and Sunday in April.)
    • June 8 and 9, 2019. (Second Saturday and Sunday in June.)

This will give you the chance to try fishing for the first time or head out on the water for a day if you’ve let your license lapse. If you do have an annual license, it would also be a good time to bring a friend, family member or child along with you so they can experience fishing firsthand.
