Summer Free Fishing Weekend approaching

   Mark your calendar for Saturday and Sunday, June 9-10. That's the date for this year's statewide, Free Fishing Weekend.
   The purpose of the weekend is to promote the fun of fishing in a state that is practically surrounded by fishable water.
   Free Fishing means no license is required, however, all other rules and regulations apply.  Taking advantage of these two days will cost you little, and is a good way to see if the sport appeals to you before sinking money in a boat, sonar, and related equipment.
   You're best bet is to seek out someone you know who fishes and ask them to go with you on one of these days.
   That helps with a couple of problems. First there's a good chance they will loan you the necessary equipment and second, you'll get some advice from someone who is experienced, thereby making your outing more enjoyable.
   For more information and to find other activities vista Read next Sunday's column, May 20, for more information.
