Healthy Hearts

fishingA person really doesnít need a reason to go fishing, but sometimes a good one could be helpful. And what could be a better reason than taking care of your heart?

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in many fish, is good for the heart. All fish contain omega-3s, but they are more concentrated in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, lake trout, herring and sardines. Some of these fish are found right here in the many lakes that are found right here in Michigan. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish, particularly fatty fish, at least two times per week.

But nutritional benefits aside, what could be better for the heart than getting away from the busyness and stress of life by spending time fishing on a beautiful, Michigan lake?
