Fishing License expiration date

Recommended Posts

alex1

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.

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???

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
