You can go freshwater fishing without a license this weekend.
June 12th and 13th are license-free freshwater fishing days in Florida.
License free fishing days are an invitation for people to try out fishing in Florida in the hopes they’ll begin doing it more regularly.
Even though you won’t need a license for freshwater fishing this weekend all other bag limit, season and size restrictions apply.
And be sure to take advantage of the free freshwater fishing this weekend – your next chance won't happen until next year.
There are now more Republican voters in Franklin County than Democrats – which may be a first for the county.
The Blue Parrot will hold its annual test of mullet aerodynamics on Saturday.
The Mullet toss takes place on the public beach in front of the Blue Parrot Oceanfront Café on St. George Island.
There are men’s, women’s, and children’s divisions.
There is a $30.00 entry fee for adults and 20 dollar fee for kids and for that you get a unique Mullet Toss T Shirt, and 2 mullet to throw.
The money helps out the Franklin's Promise Coalition.
There are prizes awarded for the longest throws in each division – first place is 200 dollars for adults while kids can win bikes, fishing poles an tackle boxes.
If you want to take part, be on the beach in front of the Blue Parrot at 10:00 AM to register.
The competition will begin at 11.
If you can't make the competition but still want to watch, the Blue Parrot has a beachcam you can see at www.blueparrotsgi.com.
