Saltwater License-free Fishing Day

TALLAHASSEE – Today, Governor Rick Scott and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced a saltwater license-free fishing day for September 1. On this day, Florida residents and visitors can experience Florida’s unique saltwater fishing opportunities first hand without being required to have a recreational saltwater fishing license.

Governor Scott said, “The license-free fishing day on September 1is a great way for families to enjoy Florida’s incredible saltwater fishing opportunities during the Labor Day holiday. Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World and this license-free weekend is a great opportunity to introduce friends and family who may have never experienced Florida saltwater fishing to enjoy the Sunshine States’ bountiful waters and historic fishing communities.”

This should be OK for Key West, too.

I thought all the charter boats always took care of the licensing anyway.

Really? Key West is in Florida? and subject to the same laws?

@ Buster. Yes, Charter Boats cover the fishing license. You don't need one when going out on any sort of a charter

There will be another two license-free fishing days: 11/29/13 for freshwater, 11/30/13 for salt-water. This would be OK for Key West, too.
