fishing regulations

9 posts in this topic

This may seem like an ignorant question, but I have never fished the Croix and would like to soon...can one with a MN fishing license fish any part of the st. croix? or do I need a wisc. license to fish the wisc. shore?

Your fine, valid license for either state will do, on either shore, go get them!

Can you fish with 2 lines even if you are on the Minnesota shoreline?

If you have a Wisconsin Liscense, you cant fish three lines with one hook each...I am not sure if with WI liscense you can fish the MN side with three, or only two...

2 lines in the summer

3 in the winter, in the great state of Packerland.

2007-2008 Wisconsin Regs, Page 6, Angling Methods and Lures;

first one;Illegal...to fish with more than three hooks, baits, or lures

Nothing about lines that I can see.

Page 54: Under Wisconsin-Minnesota Boundary Waters;

You must obey the regulations of the State you are fishing in.

With a Wisconsin License...

This would indicate 3 lines in Swissconsin, 2 lines in Minnesnowta, and where exactly is that dividing line in the River between them???

With a Minnesota License,

Two lines on either side or anywhere between...

I was down by Prescott yesterday from shore and tried to fish with 2 lines, but it was too much work. I missed fish and got my 2 lines tangled with each other, so I just ended up fishing with 1 line. Much easier and ended up catching a couple of eyes on the 1 line in the water. One 15" and one 16". Put them both back, I didn't feel like cleaning fish yesterday, all I wanted was a nice hot shower.

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
