The 7th Annual Benzie County Water Festival is hosting “Take a Kid Ice Fishing” on Betsie Bay in Frankfort this year. Fishing poles and bait are provided and shanties will be available for kids to learn how to fish through the ice. Volunteers will be on hand to help teach the basics. There are no entry fees and no licenses required for kids or adults. No kid is turned away but should be accompanied by a parent or adult. Sponsored in part by Eberhart Outdoors, Tiny Bubbles Charters, and Grow Benzie. Weather dependent – check this Facebook event for updates.
All ages are welcome.
How much? Free. Kids need to be accompanied by an adult and dressed for freezing temperatures. This is Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend when residents and out-of-state visitors may enjoy fishing on both inland and Great Lakes’ waters for all species of fish. All fishing regulations still apply.
