Associated Press Release

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The first of four license-free fishing days is this Saturday.

Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced this week the new day -- Saturday -- when the requirement to have a recreational saltwater fishing license is waived. All other regulations such as seasons, size limits and bag limits still apply.

This is the first of four additional license-free fishing days that were added to the calendar earlier this year. The four new days -- two saltwater and two freshwater -- brings the total to eight license-free fishing days a year: four saltwater and four freshwater.

Nov. 30 will be an additional saltwater license-free fishing day, while Nov. 29 and Dec. 28 will be additional freshwater license-free days.
