fishing license expiration date

4 posts in this topic

Ok guys and gals, I've heard from a couple differnt people and one resort web site from the Mille Lacs forum that the expiration date for the fishing licenses was changed to April 30th. No one can show me anything in writing, and I've looked on the DNR web site and can't find anything about this. I even called the local bait shop and they weren't sure.

Can anyone confirm this as truth or fiction? confused.gif I'd like to know as would others I'm sure if we need to get a new license next week or wait till end of April.

Any feed back as to whether this is true or not, and where you got your information from would be greatly appreciated. cool.gif

It is true, they changed it this past summer, so all the old licenses bought in the spring still show they expire this month. There is a string about this in the Ice Fishing topic on the main Forums page. Here is the link to the DNR from that string.

You are good to go, until the 1st of May.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
