    It's reel fun with a catch
    ---------------------------
    Free Fishing Weekend is June 12-13
    ----------------------------------

    Put a wake on a lake or crank on a bank and get in on some Hoosier panfish
    pandemonium during Indiana's Free Fishing Weekend.

    Hoosier adults do not need a license to fish in Indiana this June 12-13.
    Children under the age of 17 do not need a fishing license at any time.

    To help kids and adults celebrate Free Fishing Weekend, recreation areas
    located across Indiana are planning fun fishing derbies, casting clinics and
    fish cleaning and cooking classes.

    Check out a new lake or river, or introduce friends and family to a favorite
    fishing spot. Some properties require pre-registration. Call your favorite
    property for details.

    I take it that means you have to be an Indiana resident to participate?
     

  3. yes, thats what it means, it's the same way in michigan.

    I noticed now they've got 2 weekends, one for the summer season and one for the winter up north. I think thats new.
