One of the things I certainly don't do often enough is fishing.  In fact, I don't think I have for probably 5 years.  I should be OUTRAGED with myself.

Everytime I do, though, I remember how much I love it.  And my kids have been with me and I realize how much they love it.  So take advantage of this offer from the Michigan DNR:

Try ORVing or Fishing with no license required June 13-14

Reminder: On June 13-14, Michigan DNR invites family and friends to go ORVing or fishing with no license required for Free Fishing Weekend and Free ORV Weekend. If you've never gone fishing or ORVing, now is your chance to try it out without investing in a license, so take advantage and have fun out there!

It's now easier than ever to find state parks, trails, campgrounds and events near you with the Michigan DNR's new Recreation Search tool. Search by facility, amenity, city, county, zip code and more, and view results either on a map or in a list. Use the filters to narrow down your search and find the perfect recreation opportunities for you.

Michigan makes national lists for best fishing, boating and trails

Several places in Michigan were recently voted among the top 100 places to boat and fish in the United States, according to Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation. Locations include Cedar River State Harbor, Fort Custer Recreation Area, Sleepy Hollow State Park and Dodge #4 State Park.

 The word is out that Michigan's woods and waters are top notch -- get outdoors and see what the buzz is all about!

Speaking of boating and fishing, it's National Fishing and Boating Week!
