Too bad they already got my money for this season so I could get through the end of last winter. It is about time however, we pay enough fees to them.

The fees you pay them go back to support the infrastructure to your hobbies....Public accesses, public land, Conservation officers, etc.

Every one should still buy a license regardless. IMO

MuleSchack: I agree with the money going to the infrasturctue. I've bought licenses for over 30 years. I found it hard to believe that the state legislatures would give away the money now being spent. We'll end up picking up the slack someplace. The cost of doing business does not go down. I would have absolutley no problem continuing to pay the fee. If that $13 is between me fishing or not, I'm in tough financial shape and should probably sell everything. It will be interesting to see the end result of the new law. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Exactely, it's not "them" it's "us" that use the money. "They" work for us - collecting and distributeing the money.

As far as still wanting to buy the license or give them money, the DNR takes donations. Ex habitat license plates.

Why?? According to the DNR the increase in out of state fees will make up the lost sales. Also the DNR has not exactly gotten any cheaper on the ATV license every time they close a trail. There is always a increase somewhere to offset the reduction. There is a box on your tax form to check if you would like to give more. smirk.gif

I WISH that were true.

However, waaayyyy too much of the funds generated by hunting and fishing fees have been siphoned off for other "general fund" uses.

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      I can get to everything except ICE. You guys too?

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
