Free Fishing weekend-Best deal since sliced bread

   Better than sliced bread or a nickel cup of coffee are the two Free Fishing Weekends that Michigan's Department of Natural Resources promotes each year.
   Their idea is to introduce more people to the sport of fishing, thereby possibly attracting newcomers to the sport.
    Dates this summer are June 8 and 9, statewide. Anyone-residents and non-residents-can fish without a license but must comply with all other fishing regulations.

   Michigan has been celebrating the Summer Free Fishing Weekend annually since 1986 as a way to promote awareness of the state's vast water resources.
   With more than 3,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, 36,000 miles of rivers and 11,000 inland lakes, fishing and Michigan go hand-in-hand.
   "This summer’s Free Fishing Weekend is a great way to get outdoors and experience some of the best freshwater fishing in the world," said DNR Director Keith Creagh. "There’s an opportunity for everyone to get involved, as it’s an inexpensive activity and readily accessible – so get out this June and try it yourself, for free!"
   If you don't have the equipment try borrowing some from a neighbor, friend or relative. There's  good chance someone that already fishes just might invite you along to give it a try. Good luck!
