Note about the Perseid Meteor Shower, Aug 11,12,13th
In the Northern Hemisphere, the annual August Perseid meteor shower probably ranks as the all-time favorite meteor shower of the year. This major shower takes place during the lazy, hazy days of summer, when many families are on vacation.
The 2018 Perseid meteor shower will probably produce the greatest number of meteors on the mornings of August 11, 12 and 13. In a dark, moonless sky, this shower often produces 50 or more meteors per hour. And this year, in 2018, there will be no moonlight to ruin the show. Bring lots of Mosquito Repellent and something to lay on as the best way to see the meteors is to lay on the ground and look up.

Den Assignments:

A license is required when targeting fish, 
amphibians, crustaceans and reptiles in public 
waters of the state. If you fish in Michigan you 
must purchase a fishing license if you are 17 years 
of age or older. If you are under 17, you may fish 
without a license, but you are required to observe 
all fishing rules and regulations.Any adult actively 
assisting a minor must have 
a fishing license. 
People without a license can:
• Help land a fish with a net or their hands
• Help unhook a fish
• Set up the fishing rod with the appropriate gear
• Bait the hook
• Fix tangles or snags
• May cast the line for young anglers; however, it 
should be stressed that the young angler must be 
an active participant while the person assisting is 
only assisting
• If the individual assisting did have a fishing 
license there would not be any issues with
any types of assistance.
