Sunday, April 1st Is The Kickoff To Michigan’s Fishing License Season
Sunday is April 1st and as the calendar changes it is time to remember to pick up a new fishing license for 2018.
According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Sunday, April 1st is the first day that a new license is required to fish in the State of Michigan.
With the purchase of a new license, you will be able to fish all species in the State of Michigan from April 1st until March 31st of next year 2019.
This year a resident license will cost you $26. If you are a resident senior 65 or over it will be $11. There are six other options for license purchases and you can get more details on those from the Michigan DNR.
There are a couple ways to purchase a license either by E-license system or by visiting a license retailer or DNR service center.
If you do not have a license there will be another free fishing weekend for resident and non residents the weekend of June 9 and 10. You will be allowed to fish without a license through out the state that weekend.
