2 1/2 YR. Legality ?

5 posts in this topic

I need help on this one. Been getting lots of different opinions. If my daughter can real the fish up thru the hole and she is only 2 1/2 yeras old can we keep a limit for her as well? I still need to bait the hook and take the fish off, but she does the rest.

Is there anything in the regs that talk about this topic?

Thanks for any input.

Go ahead! As long as you have a lic. (handling her rod and reel and baiting it for here), you are more than in your legal right to bring home a limit for two.

Go for it, If a CO says different he needs to show us the age limit in the regs.

This is all I could Find--- If you need a specific question answered, just email your qusetion to the dnr- They are good about getting yor question answered the next business day.

License Requirements

Social security number required. To purchase a non-commercial game or fish license, nonresidents and residents must have their social security number on file with DNR or must provide it.

Residents

To qualify as a resident, a person must maintain a legal residence

in Minnesota for at least 60 consecutive days before purchasing

a license.

Residents 21 or older must provide a valid Minnesota Driver’s license or ID card, unless exempt under the Religious Freedom act.

A nonresident under age 21 whose parent is a Minnesota resident.

All residents age 15 and younger are allowed to take their own limit of fish without purchasing a license.

Nonresidents

• All nonresidents age 16 and older are required to have an appropriate fishing license while angling. Nonresidents under age 16 don’t need a license if the parent or guardian is licensed. Children of an adult who has a Minnesota nonresident family license may possess their own limit of fish. However, if the adult has an individual license, the child’s fish are included in the adult’s limit. Nonresidents under age 16 may purchase a license and possess their own limit of fish.

I actually had a CO stop me and count fish. I had a limit for myself and one for my son, and we were good to go. No problem, as long as the parent has a license.

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
