(WTXL) — People will be able to take part in license-free saltwater fishing Thanksgiving weekend.

It will take place on Saturday, Nov. 30. License-free fishing days get Florida residents and visitors out on the water.

This day is part of eight total license-free fishing days the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers each year when fishers are not required to have a fishing license to participate.

All bag limits, closed areas and size restrictions apply on these dates. To learn more, visit For fishing regulations and tips, visit
