02-13-20-Free Fishing Weekend

LEAD: This year’s President’s Day Free Fishing Weekend in Michigan comes with a bonus.

VERBATIM: In the past there were only two days of fishing without the need to buy a license but this year it’s been extended by a day running from Saturday through Monday. Officials say the extra day will allow the transition to a new system for selling hunting and fishing licenses and other permits. All rules and regulations still apply during the free fishing weekend.
