The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has designated this weekend - April 4 and 5 - as free freshwater fishing weekend.

People of any age can fish in freshwater without a fishing license. All other fishing rules still apply.

The special weekend makes it convenient parents to take their children fishing, even if the adults don't have fishing licenses, an FWC news release states.
