The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says anglers across Michigan get a chance to go fishing for free this weekend.
“Free fishing will still occur whether we have fishable ice or not. Potentially what that means is if we do see these 50 degree temperatures come our way in many parts of the state that people could consider pursuing other types of fishing this weekend. Whether it be shore fishing, I guess you could potentially bust out a boat if you were so interested.”
Department of Natural Resources spokesperson Elyse Walter also says a license is not required to fish on Saturday and Sunday, but all other fishing regulations still apply.
