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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
