The state won't fine people who fish in saltwater without a fishing license this weekend and Father's day weekend. Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission Director Nick Wiley hopes the promotion will encourage people to make a hobby of the sport and generate some tourism dollars.

Mr. Wiley says, "We want to get them hooked. We want them to see how fun it is. It also is a major economic engine for the state of Florida. Fishing generates 5.4 billion dollars in the state of florida. economic times."

The license free fishing weekends begin this Saturday and Sunday and will continue Father's Day weekend. And again it is only for salt-water fishing.
