With the fishing opener coming up this weekend, we stopped by the DNR to get tips on safety and details on new rules and regulations to keep in mind.

Additionally, if you are looking to incorporate your family this fishing season, free fishing weekend is coming up in June! Tom shares more details on that as well.
