Did you know... that it's Free Fishing Weekend this weekend across Michigan?
Yup! And with the massive amounts of cold weather we've had this season, you should be able to find a good place to take a spud and go chip and hole in the ice and wet a line (...do people that ice fish even use that phrase? lol).
The DNR says a fishing license is not required to fish on Saturday and Sunday. You can take the kids, too, as all ages apply... but be prepared for all the whining because it is gonna be COLD! Storm Team 8 says highs will be in the mid 20's, and if you like to start first thing in the morning, lows will be in single digits this weekend!
Oh and state parks will waive the Recreation Passport entry fee normally required for vehicle entry.
Oh and if you promised her (or him) a romantic weekend because Valentines Day falls mid-week this year, no worries, friend... and I hope she loves to ice fish like you do!
