License-free saltwater fishing day is Sunday

TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s residents and tourists will get a day of license-free saltwater fishing on Sunday.

Gov. Rick Scott says he hopes families can get out and enjoy “Florida’s incredible saltwater fishing opportunities.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offered a similar saltwater fishing opportunity on June 1. The agency also offered license-free freshwater fishing days on April 13 and June 8.

During a meeting in Pensacola on Sept. 5, the agency will consider adding four more license-free fishing days this year.

During license-free fishing days, all other rules and regulations – including bag limits, seasons and size restrictions – apply.
