The Fishing Capital of the World has more than 2,276 miles of tidal shoreline... which is more than enough to satisfy over a million saltwater anglers.

Florida is offering two license-free saltwater fishing Saturdays in 2012. One is June 2 and another is September 1.

License free fishing days are a great way to introduce people to the lifetime sport of fishing... from unlicensed parents building new memories with their kids... to avid anglers sharing the fun of fishing with family and friends.

Some of Florida's most popular sea life include: Grouper, Spiny Lobster, Stone Crabs and Shrimp...so come get your line wet and enjoy saltwater fishing in Florida, The Fishing Capital of the World.

The saltwater fishing days are June 2 and Sept. 1 (Labor Day weekend). The June free fishing day is the same week as the National Fishing and Boating Week, which is promoted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and includes significant national media and events. In 2011, 38 states had at least one free-fishing day during this annual event. The second freshwater fishing day also falls on this week.

June 2 also falls on the first weekend of the popular red snapper season in the Gulf of Mexico while bay scallops and spiny lobster will be open for harvest on Sept. 1.

The days draw guests to the state and get residents and visitors alike out on the water, traveling, purchasing fuel, staying in hotels and buying fishing gear. Recreational saltwater fishing has an economic impact of more than $5.7 billion and 54,000 jobs. Recreational freshwater fishing has an economic impact of more than $2.6 billion and 24,000 jobs.
