NEW LICENSE DATES??

14 posts in this topic

The rule book says one thing and then we called the dnr office and they said that your 2007 license was good until april 30, but the 2008 booklet says that your 2007 licenses is only good tell the end of feb. so I don't have a clue if they even now. A little help to get this clariffied would help thanks.

I think with the amount of ice we have this year, we could lobby for later dates, maybe they'll give us an extra week,

yes they do have to be off, but you can still use them 1 hour before sunrise to midnight, just like you can with your portable . i will still bring my wheel house out during march as long as ice permits.

With this current cold front and with how the extended forecast looks - I think we will be hauling the perms out for awhile!

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
