|Governor Crist announces free saltwater fishing weekends|
Gov. Charlie Crist has announced two free fishing weekends to help draw visitors to the beautiful Sunshine State. Both residents and nonresidents in Florida can fish for saltwater species around the state without a license during the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, May 29 to May 31, and the weekend of June 5 and 6, which is the first weekend after Florida’s popular red snapper season opens in the Gulf on June 1. All other fishing rules apply.
