    Florida's License-free Fishing Days!

    Free fishing days provide an excellent opportunity for parents who don't yet have licenses to take youth fishing, or avid anglers to introduce a friend to fishing without having to purchase a license. On these days, the fishing license requirement is waived for all recreational anglers (residents and non-residents).

    All other rules (e.g., seasons, bag and size limits) apply.

    License-free freshwater days
    • April 4 and 5, 2020

    • June 13 and 14, 2020

    License-free saltwater days
    • June 6 and 7, 2020

    • September 5, 2020

    • November 28, 2020

    The saltwater waiver applies to any recreational harvest requiring a saltwater fishing license (e.g., crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, etc.) as well as fishing from shore or a boat. A snook or spiny lobster permit are not required on these days.
