LITTLE ROCK, AR -- A free fishing weekend is underway in the Natural State.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission sponsors the event every year.

This weekend only anyone can fish without a license or trout permit.

Earlier in the afternoon...we talked to one man casting his line at MacArthur Park in downtown Little Rock.

Soloman Mayo said, "The fish are full and they're not biting so we'll just wait them out. They'll probably start biting around 6:00 or 7:00."

The reporter asked, "You'll wait for them to come out later?"

Mayo said, "Yeah, I've got more time than money!"

The free fishing event started Friday at noon and will finish Sunday at midnight.
