Marco Island FishingFishing fun for free! You can fish without a valid fishing license, at least for a few days every year. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conversation Committee has announced the dates for this year’s Florida Free Fishing Days.  Florida Fish for Free Days present 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. If you are fishing on a Florida Charter Fishing boat, ask your Captain about Fishing License requirements.

  • Second Saturday and Sunday in June
  • License-free saltwater fishing days for 2015 and beyond
