Think of it as a "try before you buy" opportunity. This Saturday, the state of Texas will allow anyone to fish. You won't need a license or endorsement.

Just a rod, reel, and your bait of choice.

The idea behind the initiative from Texas Parks and Wildlife, is to get people to fish for the first time. If you've never sat outside all day cursing at a body of water, this is your chance to see if it's the hobby for you.

Any other day of the year, if you get caught fishing on public bodies of water without a license or endorsement, you would get what could be a pretty hefty fine.

If you're looking for something to do with the kiddos that doesn't involve Fortnite or micro-transactions, head out to the nearest lake this Saturday.

You can check the Texas Parks and Wildlife website for more information.
