Avoid A Fine: Here’s How To Renew Your Michigan Fishing License
If you love fishing as much as my family and I do, then it's time to make sure you renew or get your fishing license. The new season started on April 1st and the license is good until March 31, 2023.
Growing up in Michigan, one of my favorite things to do with my dad and brother was to go fishing on the weekend. We would go out to my great-aunt and uncle's cottage in Milford, Michigan, and take a small three-person rowboat all around Sears Lake.
We would catch all kinds of fish including bluegill, bass, catfish, crappie, perch, pike, and sunfish.
