A man fishes in the Indian River Lagoon at sunrise Saturday, May 30, 2020, at Titusville.

It’s time to get that fishing rod and tackle box down from the shelf in the garage.

This Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7, the state will waive the saltwater license-requirement for recreational fishermen.

And next weekend, June 13 and 14, the license-requirement will be waived for freshwater fishing.

Other regulations, like size and bag limits, will still apply, however.

The full lists of freshwater and saltwater regulations are available here:
