Mainers: Fish Without a License Mother’s Day Weekend
This weekend is Mother's Day, and this weekend, it's a Free Fishing License Weekend. It is the state of Maine's way of encouraging people to get outdoors and enjoy Maine's many waterways with the special moms in their life or get you out of the house to Mom can enjoy some peace and quiet…whatever works for you.
Here is the deal with these special Free Fishing License Weekends in Maine; anyone, unless your license has been suspended or revoked, BUT you need to register, may fish without a license on May 8th and 9th of 2021; remember all the other rules still apply.
This free fishing license weekend is also the semi-annual free fishing weekend Maine offers up during the year. The next Free Fishing License Weekend is June 5-6, 2021.
If you like and want to get your fishing license, it is easy, and you can even do it online. Here is the link to the State of Maine website to get your fishing license.
Hey, remember basic safety and your manners. When you are going out fishing, tell someone where you are going, when you plan to return, check the weather and wear a life jacket out on the water. Be respectful of the land, landowners, and other people who may be out fishing.
