MANATEE — The next saltwater license-free fishing day in Saturday, Sept. 6, according to the Florida Wildlife Commission.
Florida residents and visitors can experience saltwater fishing opportunities without a recreational saltwater fishing license Saturday although all bag limits, seasons and size restrictions apply.
Nov. 29 is the next saltwater license-free fishing day. There are eight license-free fishing days each year, including four freshwater and four saltwater.
An annual license for residents can be purchased at 1-888-FISH-Florida or at License.MyFWC.com. All fishing license fees support Florida fish and wildlife conservation and help attain funding for Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration projects.
