You know that mom- the one that would rather paddle a boat then bake bread. The one that would rather wear rubber, knee high muddin' boots then 6-inch stilettos. Or, the one that sprays more lemon eucalyptus essential oil to ward off bugs then Chanel Number 5.

Or, who's to say she can't like all of that ;)

If you have a mom, or are you yourself a mom, who likes to get out and a get a line in the water and a reel in your hand, then you need to take advantage of this weekend's free fishing license weekend.

Everybody is welcomed to join in to celebrate every mom in the State of Maine and beyond this weekend. To take advantage of this free opportunity by registering with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

If this gets you excited, other dates to look forward to would be June 5th and 6th. This is another opportunity for a free fishing license weekend provided by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

If you are looking for a place to fish, check out this fishing guide by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. It includes fishing locations by region, a fish identification chart, how to fish for specific fish species, help for advising kids on fishing, and more.  The whole guide is available for download at the MDIFW website.

And, if you want to get more techy with your fishing trip, check out these Google Earth Data Layers developed by Inland Fisheries & Wildlife. Download Google Earth if you haven't already then check out this page to launch the layers and save them permanently to your Google Earth profile.

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers of Maine and to all of the people who benefit from their love, patience, courage and wisdom. ❤
