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.

Yeha the idea of buying a year long license wouldn't work...too difficult to monitor...

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?
