Michigan Fishing Tip: Fishing for the holiday weekendHoping to get outdoors to celebrate the Memorial Day weekend? Why not go fishing? Whether you’re new to the sport or an experienced angler – there’s plenty of fun to be had on the water this weekend! Here’s what you can do:

1. Decide where you want to fish.
Want to fish the Great Lakes? Check out our Roadmaps to Fishing the Great Lakes to see what might be porting at ports located on lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan and Superior.

Want to fish inland lakes? Our management units have lists of great places to visit and what you might catch there. Or heading out as a family? Check out our Family Friendly Fishing Waters web application to find the perfect spot.

2. Decide what you want to fish for.
Have a particular species you want to target? Check out our species pages found at Michigan.gov/Fishing. Knowing specific techniques to use when targeting certain species can be very helpful.

3. Know the rules and regulations.
Make sure you download the electronic version of the 2019 Michigan Fishing Guide or pick up a hard copy wherever fishing licenses are sold. Having a copy means you’ll have information regarding seasons, size limits, possession limits and other items.

4. Buy your license.
Save time and buy it online! Anyone age 17 or older must have a valid Michigan fishing license when heading out. Don’t forget to pick yours up!
