Hey everybody! The weekend weather looks great for most of Michigan and thanks to the DNR and other official offices you will be able to fish June 9-10 without having to purchase a license. Of course, all other fishing regulations apply so please abide by them. This is a great program and a great way to introduce kids (and even adults) to the joys of fishing. It sure beats having the kids in front of the big black dummy box (that's the tv, folks).
Fishing always reminds me of this song -
Get up now you slept to late, honey Get up now you slept to late, babe Get up now you slept to late The crawdad man done past your gate Honey, oh baby mine
What you gonna do when the lake runs dry, honey What you gonna do when the lake runs dry, babe What you gonna do when the lake run dry Sit and watch those crawdads fly Honey, baby mine.
You get a line I'll get a pole, honey You get a line I'll get a pole, babe You get a line I'll get a pole And we'll go down to that crawdad hole Honey, oh baby mine Honey, oh baby mine Honey, oh baby mine Honey, oh baby mine
Michigan is showing off its wonderful fishing opportunities this weekend with the annual Free Fishing Weekend. June 10 & 11 are the two days that fishing license fees will be waived. What a great way to introduce your kids to fishing. You shouldn't have far to drive for a fishing spot and if you borrow fishing gear from someone you won't even be out much money. The time invested with your kids is priceless. Remember, give a kid a fish and he will probably chase his sister with it for a day. Teach a kid to fish and he will enjoy a summer of chasing his sister with a dead fish.
