New Licenses

16 posts in this topic

It’s nearly that time of year again. I’m pretty sure I’m going to grab the lifetime fishing license this season. That’s going to run $383, but worth it in the long run.

Other’s that relate to fishing that you might need

Angling, Individual (age 16 and older) - $17.00

Angling, Combination (husband and wife) - 25.00

Sports, Individual - 29.50

Sports, Combination (husband and wife)2 38.50

Trout and Salmon Stamp - 10.00

Fish House or Dark House - 11.50

Just a friendly reminder that our 2006 license expire in 14 days.

Does anybody when we can purchase our 07 licenses? Before March 1?

All 2007 angling licenses should be available for purchase on Sunday 2/18, maybe even by the end of this week.

The cost of a lifetime license varies by age

age 3 or under $227 (pays to get one early if you know they will live in MN their whole life)

age 4 - 15 $300

age 16 - 50 $383

age 51 and over $203

Another bonus to the lifetime license is they are valid even if you move out of MN. Resident or not, you'll never need to purchase the license again.

we just got the 07 download yesterday at work. so the 07s should be good to go. only problem is the reliabuility of the equipment. it always seems to malfunction when there is a line of peo0le that want to get new ones or customers that just want to check out athe other stuff they might have. please be patient, know that the operators are doing their best, and maybe plan ahead a bit. dont get there needing it yesterday. that said. thank you. ... paul

Well, today is the last day we can fish with out 06 licenses so I think I'm going to try to squeeze every cent out of it. Well, actually I already have my 07 license as well, but I haven't gotten enought from my 06 quite yet.

Remember if your going to fish tomorrow, you'll need your 07 license. Don't forget to grab your shack license and a trout stamp. Again, support our local baitshops when buying a license. They don't make very much on license sales, but every little bit helps. I got mine from Hooked on Fishing in Rochester.

Andy - Remind to to put my new 07 dark shelter tag on my shack tonight.

Not when I bought ours. They just asked me height, eye color, and weight. Be careful not to be wrong on the last one. blush.gif

She does not have to be there for the purchase but she will have to sign everything before you go out. Each person is required to have their own stamp weather it for trout, phesant, or ducks. Good point Dan, I always guess low on the weight too.

If you have her license from last year, they can use her DNR # form that license. That's all I did. Now all she has to do is sign it.

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.

      Stopped in this morning and it looks like it should be good to go.
