This weekend, it's time to go fishing from the beach or from your boat. License-free saltwater fishing weekend is June 6 and 7. That's right: No recreational fishing license is required for residents or visitors. Fish away, and send us your fishing photos!

Next weekend, it's lakes, creeks, and rivers' turn.

Florida's license-free freshwater fishing weekend is June 13 and 14.

During these two weekends, a fishing license is not required for Florida residents or visitors, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

License-free weekends provide an excellent opportunity for non-licensed recreational anglers to experience fishing.
