There are now quite a few states that offer free fishing days. This typically occurs during the National Fishing and Boating Week which occurs through the 6th of June to the 14th of June.

This is the ideal time to gather up all the latest fishing resources and tools so that you can have the absolute best experience possible while on the water.

For those who are a new angler or mentoring someone new to fishing, the tools that can be extremely helpful on a free fishing day are found here.

Where to Fish and Boat Map - Are you looking for the ideal fishing hole? If so, you should seek out a map from a reputable source. Take some time to scout out the best spots to ensure you have access to some great fishing.

A Species Explorer - Once you have decided where to fish, you will need to think about the types of fish you would like to catch. This means you need to know what is in the area where you plan to go. Use an app such as pro angler to help you figure this out.

Fishing Regulations of the State - After you know where and what you want to fish for, you will need to get up to date on the regulations for the state regarding bag limits, size limits or any other regulations that may be in place for the state where you will be fishing. In most cases, this information is available online at the same location where you apply for a fishing license.

Equipment and Bait - Once you have all the details in place, you will need to get all your gear ready to go. You should be sure you have gathered the right equipment and bait to use during the fishing excursion. Chances are you already have a general idea about what you need to take along; however, if you are a bit confused, find a professional angler to ask. They will likely be more than happy to give you some of their wisdom.

Fishing is a fun pastime for men and women and the young and old. On free fishing days, it is the ideal time to get out there and catch the “big one.” However, it is also a great time just to spend time with family and friends doing something you love.
