Hot and humid and no breeze at the $600,000 bathroom this morning. But there’s good news for thrifty anglers.
The first weekend of National Fishing and Boating Week in June is designated as Free Fishing Weekend. On Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources wants anglers to know that anybody may saltwater sport fish without a license in the marine waters of Mississippi (waters south of Interstate 10) during Free Fishing Weekend.
Also, July 4 of each year is designated as Free Saltwater Sport Fishing Day on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Any person may saltwater sport fish without a recreational saltwater fishing license on July 4 in the marine waters of Mississippi.
But you still need to adhere to all size and possession limits. Let’s not go crazy with the free stuff.
