first_img State Rep. Brett Roberts 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.“This event is always a great opportunity to show your family’s newest fishermen and women how much fun it is to get out and enjoy ‘Pure Michigan’,” said Rep. Roberts, R-Eaton Township.Because Michigan temperatures were generally mild until mid-January, Rep. Roberts 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.### 01Feb Rep.
