TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Wildlife officials will be on hand at several boat ramps and docks to talk about the license-free fishing days in Florida.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is celebrating a saltwater license-free fishing day on Saturday and a freshwater license-free fishing day June 8. Residents and visitors can cast a line without a license on those days.
Staff will be at the docks and other locations to talk about how to handle fish, use dehooking tools, general boating safety and more.
The FWC also made Sept. 1 a license-free saltwater fishing day, which not only falls on a holiday weekend, but is during the popular bay scallop season.
Each year, the first Saturday in April and second Saturday in June will be license-free freshwater fishing days.
