For All Of My Fishing Pals.

13480014

Free fishing days provide an excellent opportunity for parents who don’t yet have licenses to take youth fishing, or avid anglers to introduce a friend to fishing without having to purchase a license. On these days, the fishing license requirement is waived for all recreational anglers (residents and non-residents).

All other rules (e.g., seasons, bag and size limits) apply.

License-free freshwater days for 2015 and beyond

  • First Saturday and Sunday in April
  • Second Saturday and Sunday in June

License-free saltwater days for 2015 and beyond

  • First Saturday and Sunday in June
  • First Saturday in September
  • Saturday following Thanksgiving

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 are not required on these days.

I’m ok – I’m not ok – and that’s ok

My brother lost his battle to cancer 17 years ago today. Two years ago, I blogged all about my experience. Click here to read it! In memory of him and everyone else who has fought, battled, lost or won, I’m raising money for the Walk for Wishes event. The  Tampa Chapter of Make-A-Wish Foundation is hosting the event, May 8th at Curtis Hixon Park in Tampa, FL.
