Free Saltwater Fishing in Florida
From the St Petersburg Times…
Gov. Charlie Crist signed an executive order Friday allowing people to go saltwater fishing without a license. The Free Saltwater Fishing Days order covers this weekend (Memorial Day Weekend) and next.
“Florida is the fishing capital of the world,” Crist said in a prepared statement. “Our beaches are clear, the fish are biting, and we invite our friends to enjoy some Florida hospitality.”
“We are not experiencing any oil impacts,” said Rodney Baretto, the commission’s chairman. “And the fact remains that Florida is open for business.”
