Hook & Hunting: Strong Fishing License Sales Continue in 2021
Fishing license sales saw a spike last year with many people looking for outdoor activities to enjoy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
They’re seeing strong fishing license sales as we head into the spring and the summer months.
The DNR says many people either rediscovered fishing last year or picked it up for the first time, and plan to spend time out on the water again this year.
“A lot of people either rediscovered it, people that had fished previously and had fallen away from it or new anglers joined the club, for us it’s awesome to see our awesome fisheries resources in Michigan getting utilized so we love to see a lot more people out fishing,” said DNR Fisheries Biologist Mark Tonello.
The DNR says more license sales also means more money for conservation efforts across the state.
