License-free Saltwater Fishing Father's Day Weekend

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and one great way to celebrate is by planning a fishing trip off of the waters of Florida.  So if it has been awhile since you last wet a hook, or if it is something you’ve always wanted to try, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has provided a great opportunity to get dads and their families out on the water. You won’t need a saltwater fishing license anywhere in Florida during the weekend of June 18-19.
