This is Minnesota. The home of the "we let everyone hunt". First weekend is okay; not like the great Dakotas.

Note, if you purchase your license on or after season opener it doesn't become valid for two days.

A license is valid on the second day after you purchase it.

If you buy your license on sunday it is not legal until tuesday morning. There is no time or number of hours, just remember the second day after buying.

A license bought before the opener is valid on opening day. A license bought during the season u have to wait a "Day". A day in the regs means midnight to midnight. So if u bought a license opening day, at anytime, it would not be valid until monday morning and so on. Hope this helps.

I have been told that this does not apply to bonus permits and that you can use bonus the days you buy them.

KPP is correct. Bonus permits are valid immediately only if your license is already valid. Best to get your license now. No point waiting in line next Friday night.

Only if you are from the Dakotas and you feel bad about making us wait for second weekend... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I don't mind waiting, especially during waterfowl season, I am from ND and the main flight and the big boys don't get down for 2-3 weeks after opener anyway...I say welcome to MN and hunt away

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
