There are more than 11,000 inland lakes, five acres in size or larger, in Michigan according to the Michigan Inland Lakes Partnership. One is never more than six miles from an inland lake or more than 85 miles from one of the Great Lakes.

Almost half of Michigan is comprised of water and, except for Alaska, Michigan has more shoreline than any other state, fronting four of the Great Lakes: Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Erie with 3,177 miles of Great Lakes shoreline.

Now that we've made it to other side of another winter (I'll probably regret saying that), seems like it's time to exercise the fish.

We're not just a news organization, we're also your neighbors

We’ve been there for you with daily Michigan COVID-19 news; reporting on the emergence of the virus, daily numbers with our tracker and dashboard, exploding unemployment, and we finally were able to report on mass vaccine distribution. We report because the news impacts all of us. Will you please donate and help us reach our goal of 15,000 members in 2021?
