Fishers get chance to catch free fish over weekend in Michigan

This undated photo provided by ReelSonar shows someone demonstrating the use of the iBobber. The iBobber fish finder attaches to your fishing line and floats on the surface of the water. Once you cast it, the iBobber can show you where fish are and how big they are. It also maps the floor of the waterbed, letting you know how deep the water is and pointing out obstacles, as far down as 135 feet, whether you fishing from shore, boat or dock.

(WLNS) – Just in time for the first warm weekend, Michiganders are invited to fish for free this weekend.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources allows people to fish for free this weekend, at the state of the season.

DNR representatives remind fishers, the weekend does not include ice fishing because of safety concerns with ice thickness.

Stay off of any ice that looks icy or is snow covered.

The next free fishing weekend is this summer between June 10 and the 11.
