first_img01Feb Rep. Webber encourages local residents to fish for free on Feb. 13 and 14 Categories: News,Webber News State Rep. Michael Webber encourages anglers to get out to the nearest lake to participate in Free Fishing Weekend, which will take place on Feb. 13 and 14.Free Fishing Weekend is an event hosted twice each year by Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources – once in February, and again in June. On Feb. 13 and 14, fishermen and women are not required to carry a license while fishing. As most Michigan lakes are frozen solid in February, the winter weekend event is traditionally used for ice fishing.“Even though it’s cold outside, ice fishing is a great way to enjoy Michigan’s great outdoors,” said Rep. Webber, R-Rochester Hills. “The DNR’s Free Fishing Weekend is a great opportunity to get out there with friends, family and young ones.”Because Michigan temperatures were generally mild until mid-January, Rep. Webber encourages anglers to take extra safety precautions when venturing out onto the ice to drop a line.A full listing of current and upcoming Free Fishing Weekend activities can be found online at www.michigan.gov/freefishing.###last_img read more
