The owner of the bait store I go to told me that they have extended the license for this year 07-08 until april 1st..

Anyone else heard that? I've been trying to find a press release on line but haven't come across one..

Does that mean that I can't buy a valid 2008 license until April 30th?

You can buy a valid 2008 license starting on March 1st. There is now an overlap built in to the license system. Strange, but it may work better for some.

I thought the over lap was only because they changed the date the license expires after the season had started. I think from now on your license will expire on April 30th. There won't be an overlap next year.

Would be nice if the DNR let us have our houses out of another week or so, there is so much ice out there and the forcast isnt going to melt it anytime soon. I know this has happened in the past and I think this is a great year for it to happen again but its almost too late already if they were going to do it.

And yes I believe that is correct, this year will overlap if you buy your licence march 1st, you can but you dont need to until april, your choice really it makes no difference, and the licence you buy this year wont expire until next april.

Minnesota 2007 fishing and shelter licenses valid through April 30 (February 28, 2008)

A legislative change effective Aug. 1, 2007 extended the expiration date of 2007 fishing licenses for resident and nonresident anglers through April 30, 2008, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Any stamps or tags to harvest particular species also are valid through April 30, 2008.

Angling licenses, stamps and tags for 2008, which will be effective from March 1 through April 30, 2009, went on sale Feb. 18.

Ice shelter licenses also are valid through April 30, 2008.

Why doesn't the DNR sell liscenses good for a year from the date of purchase? So if you bought your liscense on june 24th, then it would be good through the 23rd. The Mn state park system does this and I think it's a good idea. Would certainly clarify matters.

The state parks may have different system cause it easier to follow. $ guys all fishing in the same boat with different dates in a lic. would be a head ache to follow.

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.

      Just seen an article to that says they are planning a new license increase.  It been five years and they plan to increase very 5-6 years from now on.
