(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) – On Saturday, November 30, Keep Florida Fishing® (KFF), an advocacy arm of the American Sportfishing Association, invites Florida residents and visitors to take part in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) last saltwater license-free fishing day of 2019. This event is one of eight license-free fishing days offered by FWC this year, and falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

“Let’s celebrate the final license-free saltwater fishing day of 2019 by renewing our commitment to clean waters, abundant fisheries, and access to both. We thank the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for this special opportunity for Florida’s more than four million anglers to get out and experience our state’s natural resources.  We encourage everyone to enjoy a day fishing Florida’s coastal waters on Saturday, November 30,” said Gary Jennings, Director of Keep Florida Fishing.

“License-free fishing days are one of the best ways for people to discover why Florida is the ‘Fishing Capital of the World.’ With 2,276 miles of tidal shoreline throughout the Sunshine State, we encourage residents and non-residents alike to enjoy a day on the water in honor of the last license-free saltwater fishing day of the year,” said Kellie Ralston, Southeast Fisheries Policy Director of the American Sportfishing Association.

According to FWC, while the fishing license requirement is waived for all recreational anglers (residents and non-residents), all other rules apply.
