Visiting Florida over Labor Day weekend? In a one day promotion, residents and visitors can experience the Sunshine State’s unique saltwater fishing opportunities without a recreational saltwater fishing license. Gov. Rick Scott and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission designated Sept. 1 saltwater license-free fishing day.

“The license-free fishing day on Sept. 1 is a great way for families to enjoy Florida’s incredible saltwater fishing opportunities during the Labor Day holiday,” Scott said in a statement. “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.”

License-free fishing days, including freshwater days, were held earlier this year according to the statement from the governor’s office. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is considering adding four additional license-free fishing days to the calendar, during a Sept 5 meeting. If approved, there will be two more saltwater and two more freshwater license-free fishing days before the end of 2013.
