Every June, Floridians can take advantage of a license-free fishing weekend. This opportunity is a great time for people to try fishing for the first time and see if it’s a hobby they’d like to explore more seriously. 

During this pandemic, people are getting outside now more than ever. Why not try a new activity? If you live in Florida (the fishing capital of the world), you might as well give it a shot. 

This year’s license-free saltwater fishing weekend is June 6 & 7, and the license-free freshwater fishing weekend is June 13 & 14. During this time, a fish license is not required for Florida residents or visitors.

If you plan to fish on either of those weekends, remember to stay by checking your local weather forecast, wearing a lifejacket at all times, and paying attention to the water. And don’t forget to continue practicing social distancing!
