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.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
