Your 2007 license is good through Feb. 29, 2008. New 2008 reg's for fishing licenses are for 14 months from March to April 30th, 2009 on page 5 or 2008 Minnesota Fishing 2008 Regulations.

My 2007 license says it expires on February 29,2008, as well.Are you sure you read it right off of the DNR website? I just read part of the 2008 regulations book, and it does read that 2008 licenses will be good until April 30,2009.That could be an expensive mistake if the dates are misinterpreted.Anyone else want to verify the real deal here?

Yeah, rockman, check out my link to the DNR site on page 1 of this thread. It came straight from their site.

polar, I checked out the link.It does say that on the linked page. I then checked the DNR's online copy of the 2007 regulations book, and that says the 2007 license expires on February 29. Someone,if not myself, needs to email the DNR to get this clarified.

It's 2008 the online 2007 regulations book was put together in 2006.

The DNR won't go back and change any of that.

pierbridge,what exactly are you telling me? I went to the general fishing page of the DNR's website, and clicked on the link to the pdf copy of the 2007 regulations.The regulations online are indentical to the printed book,except for a few revised new changes to the regs, and that book states, once again, the 2007 license expires on February 29th.If I missed the revisions in that pdf copy of the regs.book that is online,can someone provide a link to where the DNR amended the regs to extend the license period of the 2007 license until April 29th? In any event, I will call the DNR tomorrow to clarify this.

It is not in the 2007 reg book. It is in the DNR FAQ. I printed out a copy to carry with me just in case.

We could probably all not worry about it too much buy purchasing our license on March 1st, it is something we need to do sometime in the next couple months anyway. We know that those ones will be good until the end of Arpil in 09. Only problem with this scenario is that we need to find a place selling licenses early as Cool Cats is on March 1st.

The 2007 season goes until 2/29/08. the 2008 season begins March 1. NEW this season is that a fishing license is valid for 14 months (from page 5 of the 2008 regulations)

So the information on the FAQ link is correct. Legislature then applied it to current license as well. This is so you don't have to by a new license before the ice season is done.

good luck all....

I am coming up from Alabama 28 Feb - 7 March and knew about the law which had fishing licenses expire on 29 Feb, so I called the DNR directly and they told me the 2007 licenses are good through 30 April 08. They also directed me to the same FAQ link on their site to verify.

Just got off the phone with the DNR. Your 2007 license is good until April 30th, 2008.

If you think about it it just makes sense to change the expiration date. Now you don't have to buy a new license to finish out the hard water season.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
    • Wanderer
      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
