This Weekend is the 2018 #MiFreeFishingWeekend
We’re only days away from the winter free fishing weekend.
And the DNR wants to remind everyone in Michigan that no license is required to fish this weekend.
The 17th and 18th is the MiFreeFishingWeekend – an annual effort to promote Michigan’s fishing opportunities.
While you can head out on your own, the DNR would like to point out that there are many events planned to help get people started.
Some of the events in our area include a chance to learn from Ice Fishing Experts at the Carl T Johnson Center in Wexford County on Saturday, a competitive event on any lake in Grand Traverse, Benzie, and Leelanau Counties that is put on by the Grand Traverse Area Sport Fishing Association, and a charity fishing tournament called Fishing for a Cure in Chippewa County.
More information on those events and others can be found at michigan.gov/freefishing.
