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!

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
