Changes in fishing regulations 12/10

8 posts in this topic

Thanks Ron.

I'm probably in the minority here but the slot limit rule change which allows people to clean and eat slot limit fish on a lake is extremely stupid IMO.

IMO......

I feel like the DNR continues being placed in more and more restricted positions. I don't agree with some of the new rule's that the Gov. comes up with.

1st. You don't need a fish house license unless your fish house is unmanned (if your using your house, you don't need a license; but if your not using it, you do need one)

I don't know, but to me thats like saying if your going to drive your car you don't need a drivers license, but if your not going to drive your car you do.

2nd The whole cleaning and eating fish in the fish house deal. To me, it's hard enough for the DNR to enforce the rules when they are not allowed into a persons fish house unless invited. Now you can clean and eat the fish before you ever leave the lake.

Again, thats just my opinion.

Has anyone else heard of a possible change in the dates of fishing licenses changing? I know I have read or heard about this somewhere. They were going to change it so you did not have to buy a new liicense in during ice season,,

Fishing licenses, the angling portion of a sporting license, and fish house and dark house licenses for both residents and non-residents are now good from March 1 until April 30 of the following year. (Ex.- A license bought March 1, 2007 is good until April 30, 2008.)

This change didn't make it into the 2007 Fishing Regs book, but is on page 18 of the 2007 Hunting Regs book as a new reg under the "License Year" heading. All other licenses still expire at the end of their respective seasons.

I had an on-ice conversation with a metro CO yesterday and this subject (license expriation) came up. The CO I spoke to thought the new expiration dates were in effect, but he couldn't confirm it. Apparently, even if the exp date on your license says Feb. 29, 2008 (happy leap year), it'll be valid through April 30, 2008!

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
