Freshwater fishermen, this weekend is your chance to cast your lines around the state without a license.

On Saturday and Sunday, Florida residents and non-residents can fish without a license in any fresh waterways.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission prides these days as an opportunity for parents to "take youth fishing, or avid anglers to introduce a friend to fishing."
