On September 7, you can try your hand at saltwater fishing without needing a saltwater fishing license.

“License-free fishing days are a great way for Florida residents and visitors to get out on the water and find out why Florida is known as the Fishing Capital of the World,” a spokesperson for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

This day is part of eight total license-free fishing days the  (FWC) offers each year.


The saltwater waiver applies to any recreational harvest requiring a saltwater fishing license (e.g., crabbing, lobstering, scalloping, etc.) as well as fishing from shore or a boat. A snook or spiny lobster permit is also not required on these days.

Please keep in mind that all bag limits, closed areas, and size restrictions apply on these dates.
