License-free Fishing in Saltwater days

September 4


License-free fishing days provide an excellent opportunity for those who don’t yet have a fishing license to experience fishing, take youth fishing, or for 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, including both residents and non-residents.

License-free saltwater days

  • First Saturday in September (Sept. 4th) 

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


For more information, please visit the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.
