Sunset Lake busy during derby and Free Fishing Weekend

Saturday, June 8 was good day on the lake during Michigan’s Free Fishing Weekend. The Bates Township Park boat launch on Sunset Lake was busy. The fishing pier had people on it and Wildlife Unlimited of Iron County greeted youth for its Youth Fishing Event. There were only a handful of kids that participated but each were given shoreline assistance from WU members, a venture onto the lake in a pontoon and fishing gear prizes. Michael Onderak of Crystal Falls received fishing tips from Michigan DNR Conservation Officer Anna Viau. Michael also caught a fish!
