Bridge Michigan
Michigan’s nonpartisan, nonprofit news source

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.
