It’s a Free (ice) Fishing Weekend!

Vintage Ice Fishing Michigan

Two times a year, the State of Michigan has free fishing weekends, once in the summer (Jun 9 & 10, 2012) and once this weekend (Feb 18 & 19). All fishing regulations still apply, but fishing license fees are waived for residents and out-of-state visitors who can fish on both inland and Great Lakes’ waters for all species of fish.

All over the state there are special fishing events including the Ellsworth Shiverfest in Antrim County, the Winter Festival at the Bay City State Recreation Area, the Dam to Dam Ice Fishing Contest in Newaygo, the Higgins Lake WinterFest and the Free Fishing Weekend Special Event at Brighton Recreation Area.

You can get more on the weekend and some ice fishing videos on Absolute Michigan.

Check this out on black and see a lot more cool old photos, ice fishing decoys and memorabilia in Don’s ice fishing slideshow.
