The Department of Natural Resources and Environment is offering a charter fishing tour designed specifically for women on beautiful Lake Michigan on Saturday, July 17. The class, part of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program, is open to female anglers of all skill levels.
Participants are invited to come enjoy an afternoon on the water trolling for King and Coho salmon, steelhead and lake trout.
The six-hour trip, hosted by Ludington Charter Service, will leave from Ludington at 3 p.m. Saturday, July 17. All boats are inspected and piloted by a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain, include all safety and navigational equipment and enclosed bathrooms. Fishing equipment is provided; however, anglers should bring their own cooler, food, beverage, camera, sunscreen and sunglasses and should dress for the weather, including non-slip footwear. A valid Michigan All-Species fishing license is required for this trip. A one-day license is available online at www.michigan.gov/dnr or at most local sporting goods retailers.
Registration must be received by July 2, and cost per participant is
$125. For more information and a registration form, visit www.michigan.gov/bow. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-241-2225.
