TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) – Fishermen will be able to plan more trips and fish without a license.

Florida wildlife officials are adding four license-free fishing days to the calendar.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced the additional days Monday.

Florida already offers four license-free fishing days per year. Saltwater days this year were on June 1 and Sept. 1, and freshwater days were April 6 and June 8. FWC commissioners voted last week to hold additional saltwater license-free fishing days Oct. 12 and Nov. 30 and additional freshwater license-free days Nov. 29 and Dec. 28.

Commissioners also set dates for 2014 and beyond. All eight days will now fall on the same day of the week from year to year, allowing potential anglers to plan fishing trips in advance.
