Don’t like Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s latest ruling to shut down all fishing?

Do as Mark Zona suggested in a recent video. Call her Monday. Call the Michigan DNR, too, whose director was appointed by her and should have her ears.

In case you missed it, the governor on Friday prohibited the use of motorized boats. That includes electric motors as well as gasoline motors.

She allows you to fish from a kayak, canoe or row boat providing you go alone.

That means you can no longer hook up your boat and go fishing alone or with your immediate family.

The Dowagiac Conservation Club will host a Hunter Safety Class March 26-28 with registration set for Wednesday.

Registration runs from 6-7 p.m. at the clubhouse located two miles north of Dowagiac on M-51 North.

The course will be held at the club from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. March 26-27 and 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 28.

There is no charge for the class but students must pre-register with a birth certificate and attend all three classes to get their Hunter Safety Certification.

For more information, call Furmer, 269-646-9839.
