The second weekend of license-free saltwater fishing in Florida begins tomorrow, June 8! Tomorrow and Sunday are your last chances to partake in this special event, offered by The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWCC). These two back-to-back weekends only occur once a year.

While size and bag limits still apply for the duration of the event, fees “for all recreational anglers, including both residents and non-residents,” are waived in honor of these 4 days, according to FWCC. Other water activities, like crabbing, scalloping, and lobstering can be participated in without a license tomorrow and Sunday as well.

Licenses for both saltwater and freshwater fishing are priced starting at $17 per year, so if you would like to fish year-round, you can order licenses for different activities here.
