Fish-again in Michigan – the tradition continues

ROSCOMMON CO.–Want your young ones to put down their smart phones and tablets? Trade them for a fishing rod and teach them how to fish. It works.

Case in point – the first person to catch a fish in the Houghton Lake Area Tourism Bureau’s 2016-17 fishing contest was a 7-year-old girl. She put her own bait on the hook, dropped her line, and caught a 12-inch rock bass. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Her great-grandparents used to fish Higgins and Houghton Lakes. She was with her grandparents and father, carrying on the family tradition. What greater gift can be passed on to your children than a love of being on the water and fishing with those you love?

Residents and volunteers of Michigan’s Other Great Lakes understand. The second annual Family Fishing Fest is June 11 on Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend. Higgins Lake, Houghton Lake and Lake St. Helen communities have come together and planned family events at all three lakes and organized a fishing contest (not a registered, serious fishing derby) with prizes for 12 and under and for the adults who take them fishing.

Won’t you be pleased when you hear your child ask “where’s my rod? I want to fish-again!”
