License-free saltwater fishing day coming up in Florida

By The Tally Wire Staff

TALLAHASSEE, Fla (The Tally Wire) – A third license-free saltwater fishing Saturday in Florida is coming up immediately following Thanksgiving. On Saturday, Nov. 27, all recreational anglers, including non-residents and residents, can fish in all saltwater areas without a license.

“The saltwater waiver applies to any recreational harvest requiring a saltwater fishing license (e.g., crabbinglobsteringscalloping, etc.) as well as fishing from shore or a boat.  A snook or spiny lobster permit are also not required on these days,” according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

All seasons, bag and size limits rules still apply. 

Each year, the first consecutive Saturday and Sunday in June and the first Saturday in September are also license-free saltwater fishing days as well. Fishing 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.
