Wisconsin – Free Fishing Weekend: June 1 – 2, 2013

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Yes, it’s true over the weekend of June 1st through the 2nd you can fish anywhere in Wisconsin for free. Naturally, since we are a Wisconsin (and Michigan) vacation property real estate company we are encouraging people to head up north, look at a lake lot, lake access property, river acreage, river access land or wooded stream property that is for sale, and try out the fishing. You might land the big property deal at the same time you hook a trophy catch.

Here’s the Wisconsin DNR summary:

“Fish anywhere in Wisconsin without a license or trout stamp on Free Fishing Weekend. This includes all inland waters and Wisconsin’s side of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River. Other fishing rules apply, such as limits on the number and size of fish you can keep and any seasons when you must release certain fish species. So, pack up the family or call your friends and head to the water for fishing fun.”

“The housing market is also seeing success here in northern Michigan. Megan Luce, the 2013 President-elect for Traverse Area Association of Realtors and a realtor at Century 21 Northland says her company is already up 26% from last year.

Luce says she’s seeing a trend of buyers looking for second investments homes; water front properties and houses close the downtown area.

“I predict this positive trend will continue in our northern Michigan market, I think we’re going to see a low inventory and a sellers market right now,” Luce said. “With a low inventory and more buyers out there, there’s little to pick from it does drive the prices up.”
