Senate Bill 869 passes Michigan Senate unanimously
At the Senate Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Committee hearing on SB 869, MDNR Legislative Liaison Trevor VanDyke stated the MDNR fully supports removing bass season limits from state law because of recent science giving flexibility to the NRC to set an earlier season that will be good for Michigan.

Since Dan seems intent on only posting to other stuff, here is a brief report. Had a great day of fishing the other day. Jigs and worms were the ticket. I’ll post one pic cuz I’m tired and have to get my 5 hours of sleep.
