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.

in Minnesota for at least 60 consecutive days before purchasing

a license.

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

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.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
