Attention, anglers, it's a free fishing weekend in Michigan.
Twice a year, the Department of Natural Resources waives fishing license fees to give resident and out-of-state fishermen a chance to enjoy their sport on any of the state's inland and Great Lakes' waters.
All fishing regulations will still apply, but anglers are free to pursue all species of fish.
This year's free fishing weekends are Feb. 16-17 and June 8-9.

Shelby Township and Utica residents can head east to Lake St. Clair, or enjoy fishing a bit closer to home at Stony Creek Lake. Ice fishing on both sections of the lake below 28 Mile Road is permitted in the winter. However, fishing from bridges within the metropark is prohibited.
Stony Creek has a $5 daily vehicle entry fee. The park is open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the winter.
