This weekend is the DNR's annual free fishing weekend. You can fish this weekend without a license.
Its a great opportunity to take kids fishing, especially from shore. On the right you'll find several options for places to take kids fishing from shore. Young Children? Keep it simple. Fish for panfish in the shallow water. Bobbers, split shots and hooks baited with worms, either redworms, waxworms or panfish plumpers.
The panfish are moving shallow right now, and there will be some excellent opportunities to catch some fish from shore this weekend.
