TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida is offering anglers the opportunity to fish in saltwater without a license on Saturday.
Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a news release that license-free fishing days offer a "special opportunity to enjoy Florida's beautiful outdoors."
"I encourage all Floridians and visitors to take advantage," DeSantis said.
This is one of eight license-free fishing days the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers each year.
FWC executive director Eric Sutton said this is a "great opportunity to introduce someone to fishing for the first time."
All other rules such as seasons, bag and size limits still apply.
