This week is "Free Fishing Weekend in Wisconsin if you love the outdoors.

My Experience Fishing And In The Outdoors

I will admit, I do not have a lot of experience in the outdoors. I can count the number of times I have been camping on one hand. Also, I have not had many opportunities to do some real fishing. Most of my experience was with a pocket fisherman at the pond across the street from where I grew up.

I did get to go on an awesome boat trip on Lake Michigan a few years ago. I was not lucky enough to catch a fish but that was okay. It was still a blast. I understand why people really enjoy it. I did learn something important about fishing that day. It is not free. I never realized you needed to purchase a license to do it.

Getting A Fishing License

No matter if you are going for a day or several, you need to get yourself a fishing license. Of course, there is a fee depending on where you are or what you are doing. Some places do offer free days earlier in the season. There is a chance coming up this weekend in Wisconsin.
