please help me figure out

5 posts in this topic

im coming up to st cloud in mid march for7-10 days. havent figured out yet exactly how many. I am going to visit a friend however i plan do do as much fishing as i can. Being from Texas I'm not going to let this opportunity pass me up. Anyhow my question was, what type of license do i need, or a explanation of the different ones. I looked it up quick online and kinda confusing to me without knowing the local fishing laws. In Texas we just have a fresh water, salt water and combination tag.

If you are going to fish MORE than 7 days get the NON Resident individual license ($35) or the NR 7 day license is $25.

Walleye, bass, northern, muskie, and trout season will not be open at that time.

Good luck.

That is not entirely true. Border waters. Excellent walleye fishing to be had up at Lake of the Woods.

You are correct.

He said St. Cloud not LOW or Rainy so I gave him the "local fishing laws"... As he requested.

It'll be a panfish trip unless you hit the chain where the challen cats can be going good that time of year if the ice is still good in the St Cloud area that time of year.

The liscense thing was covered pretty well dependign on whther you be fishing for a week,(7 days nonresident liscense) or if longer, (full season non resident liscense).

I hope you have as much fun up here in March as I had in South TX last December.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
