Michigan Free Fishing Weekend  June 12- 13, 2010

As summer in Michigan approaches, Michiganders start to

gravitate toward the 11,037 inland lakes, 36,350 miles of rivers

or streams, or the 3288 miles of Great Lakes shoreline available

for recreation in Michigan [ Included are 12,000 miles

of trout waters].  In fact, there is so much water

available, that wherever you are in Michigan, you are never

more than 6 miles away from a body of water.

Grand River 6th st bridge

If you have fond memories of fishing with your Dad or grand-

parents, then why not create your own memories this weekend?

The Michigan Dept of Natural Resources has declared that you can

fish in any Michigan inland or Great Lakes waters for all species of

fish – without a license – this weekend.

Please note that all fishing regulations still apply.

And don’t forget about safety.  You are still required to follow

all watercraft laws.  So, get out the poles, grab some bait,

and get fishing!

We have a list of the TOP Best Lowell  Michigan Houses to buy,

based on price per square foot.   Price per square foot

is a great leveler.  If two similar homes are listed at similar

prices, their price per square foot should be similar.

The price should reflect the interior finish of the  home.

For example, if it has crystal chandeliers, marble tile, & a

new kitchen, this would be more per square foot than

a home that still has the 1970’s decor and/or is in derelict

condition.

Please note that this list can change daily as some homes

sell, prices are adjusted and other homes come on the market.

Check back often or just subscribe to our blog to get

up-to-date local real estate information that you want to know.
