If it’s been a while since you've 'gone fishing,' the Indiana Department of Natural Resources is inviting you to fish for free this weekend.
Whether you’re looking for dinner or just for sport, the popular pastime is a great way to enjoy nature.
Throughout the state, residents can wet a line without purchasing a license on June 7 and 8.
Both experts and casual fisherman are invited to take an opportunity to relax.
"You don't have to be tall or fast, it’s an even playing field. You can make it as simple or complicated as possible," said Clint Kowalik with DNR.
And many believe the sport is even better when shared.
"I think It's the greatest family sport there is. It’s relaxing, it’s cheap and there’s no better way to get out and spend time with family and friends," James Donlan, with Westside Bait & Tackle, said.
"It’s for people that haven't fished for a while. Maybe their parents or grandparents took them and now their kids are saying, 'Mom, dad take me fishing,'" Kowalik said.
Dozens of locations are participating, including Eagle Creek Park and Lake Monroe. Click here for a list of other participating locations -- http://bit.ly/Tbaz4k
