Fishing License expiration date

11 posts in this topic

Ok everyone here we go, I've been told from a couple different people and even saw it on a website for a resort on Mille Lacs that the expiration date for the fishing licenses got changed tl April 30th. The only problem is no one can show me anything in writing as to whether or not this true. I even called the local bait shop down here and they weren't sure, and I checked the DNR website and couldn't find anything.

Here's the question does anyone know if this is true or fiction confused.gif, and were did you get your infortmation from. I and others I'm sure would like to know if we need to get a new license next week or if a person can wait till the end of April.

I also posted this on the Alexandria area forum and got a response guys and gals. It is on the DNR web site under the ice conditions posting and frequently asked questions. It has been changed till April 30th. It wasn't passed until the new license for 2007 was out so anyone that baught a new license right away last year like I did it still showed Feb. 29th. If you waited till lte spring or summer to get it your license will show April 30th.

I can't find my license. Should I get a duplicate 2007, or can I go ahead and buy my 2008? Is 2008's available now, and are they valid for this time of year?

I recall correctly, duplicate wasn't outragous. 10 bucks or so.....well then again a new one would be smarter if it is only a fishing license.

Your 2008 license is NOT valid until May 1.

My question is then, why when you go into the fishing regulations section off of the main MNDNR webpage, does the following still show,

"2007 Fishing Regulations (1.5 MB)

Effective March 1, 2007 - February 28, 2008

The online version of the 2007 Fishing Regulations contains the latest corrections to the printed version. Corrected text is highlighted in green." and,

"2008 Fishing Regulations (1.9 MB)

Effective March 1, 2008 - February 28, 2009"

I would think that they could at least put a big notice right on the main fishing regulation's page notifying folks of the new season license dates (and correct them on the Link titles). Too much to ask???

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
