License-Free Fishing on the Gulf CoastPosted on 08/30/13
Whether you own real estate in Destin and along Florida’s Gulf Coast or just happen to be visiting with us this Labor Day weekend, you are in for treat. For one day this weekend, September 1, 2013, you can experience fishing our emerald waters license-free!
Obtaining a Florida fishing license is not especially difficult or expensive, but if you happen to just be visiting, or have recently purchased a home on the Emerald Coast, then this is the perfect opportunity to try our area’s favorite sport without going through the hassle. License-free fishing applies only in Florida on this day and is exlcusive to our saltwater fish. All you need to do to take advantage of this opportunity is grab a pole and some bait before heading out to your favorite spot along the water. Choose from a myriad of options, including multiple piers and endless stretches of sand.
Cast your line and see if you can’t reel in the big one this weekend. The vast of majority of local fish are currently in season. This includes a range of Snapper (not red!), Grouper and, of course, Gulf of Mexico favorites such as Cobia and King Mackerel. Hit the shores this weekend and happy fishing!
