Can I fish here?

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I have a MN license. Can I fish from shore on the WI side of the Croix?

I dont think so, If you fish on shore or transport fish in Wisconsin you would be considerd fishing in Wisconsin. Same goes for Minnesota shore fishing if your from Wisconsin. That would be my logic I could be wrong. I hope I'm not because I'm only allowed one wrong a year grin

Another question I also wonderd about if one fishes a body of water that has legal fishing after the season is over for the rest of the state and you get pulled over and checked and you are say 30 miles from that body of water how do you prove the fish was not taken from a local lake. Or is your word good enough.

You know curt i wonder on that last part too... especially when I'm hunting pheasants in Nebraska and I'm truckin thru MN with a buncha dead birds in the back. Especially if I stopped to hunt some more on the way home

And I agree about the shore fishing thing - on the water you're fine with a MN license, but if you are physically on WI ground you better have a WI license

Just stand in the water. cool

Kidding aside, I've wondered that same thing for a while. I called and didn't get a clear answer from the WiDNR. Anyone else have any luck finding this out?

MN anglers are allowed to shore fish on the WI side, and vice versa. Check page 42 of the rules and regulations.

Thanks JB, I would suggest to have a clear story on hand in case you are checked while traveling through Wisconsin. Do the rules state anything on transporting the fish if in Wisconsin. These rules might be a little murky and up to the CO for determanation.

Hermy! Negatotry on that one Good Buddy! You can fish the river with a Minnesota License or you can fish the river with a Wisconsin License. or I suppose you could fish it with licenses from both states if you are in doubt and want to satisfy the CO from either state. But if you are on the Wisconsin shore you need a Wisconsin License.

Because the St. Croix is a border water and because Wisconsin permits fisherman to use two lines, Minnesota Fisherman may use two lines while fishing the St. Croix.

Now I could be wrong so I would call and check but I disagree. I think you can fish on the Wisconsin side with a Minnesota license. In college we fished the Mississippi near La Crosse, which is a border water. We got checked by the CO's all the time and we all had WI licenses but fished on the Minnesota side. I dont think it would be any different on the St. Croix would it? I could be wrong but thats what I think.

This is the exact quote from page 42 in the rules and regulations..."anglers may launch and fish from either shore and may transport their catch by the most direct route to the state in which they are licensed".

My favorite shorefishing spot on the croix is on the WI side. I think it'd be pretty silly to allow Minnesotans to launch their boats in WI, but not let them fish from the shore.

Take a copy of the regs with you when you go. I would assume that all the CO's know the rules, maybe the sherrifs don't or something. I don't assume anymore, just take the regs with you. But you are legal to do so.

Second that...I've been checked by WI CO and Sheriff with a Minnesota license on the Croix. It's considered border water so you can use your Minnesota License.

There is a part in Hudson that connects to the Saint Croix that everone assumes is the Saint Croix but it's actually a lake in WI that you CANNOT fish without a WI License. I was pointed that out by a very nice WI CO.

I'll add thirds - if you are a MN res with a MN license, you can fish from shore on both sides of the river. I grew up in Ortonville and the regs regarding this issue are the same for SD border waters as they are on the Croix.

Actually I am a WI res. with a MN license. I am just going to buy the WI license anyway. I'll be making a trip out there in July so I'll need it anyway.

Hermy,

To fish the St. Croix you must be licensed in the state you reside. WI residents must have a WI license and MN residents vice versa, so it's good you'll be getting a WI license.

Good luck and hammer them! Turk

you have to transport your fish to your home by the most direct and feasable route.

yes, 4th or 5'thed? any resident of the state they reside holding a license from their state of residence can fish either shore or on the water.

      There should be three components in the work: the introduction, the argumentatively proved thesis, and the conclusion. There are no strict requirements for the arrangement of the components: the thesis can go to the conclusion, but the main task of the author is to ensure the logicality and integrity of the 99 papers reviews. Do not forget when using references to other people's work to mark it with appropriate references, and do not overload paragraphs - each should be marked one complete idea or argument. Introduction This is your calling card, a chance to interest the reader: with a word or phrase, a bold quote to hook and arouse curiosity, without deviating from the main thesis. Use a rough draft, because it is easier to find an interesting "hook" for the introduction while working on the essay, and then put it in the introduction. Remember the popular saying that a worthwhile thought always comes later!   Don't "pour water"; try to use words directly related to the topic of the essay. Mistakes: Blank. Applicants commit the sin of quoting popular people, telling primitive jokes, or using headlines and facts from the media that are annoying to the review committee. Such an introduction will not arouse positive emotions. Dry facts. The task of the introduction - to arouse interest: do not hesitate to be emotional, because the restrained presentation of the facts will leave the reader indifferent. Thesis When choosing a thesis statement, it should be firmly understood that it is not a scientifically proven fact or the result of conducted experiments and observations, but the main idea of the essay, which can be expressed in a few words. To be sure you have a thesis statement, imagine: the examiner put your written work aside and, without reading it, asks you what the main idea is. The two or three sentences you will need to answer are the thesis statement, a summary of the entire essay.   The topic offered in educational institutions often has different interpretations and approaches. You are not faced with the task of finding an unambiguous solution to the question posed - remember that they want to know your personal point of view, test your ability to think logically and be intellectually savvy. It is acceptable to quote from the works of any researcher or philosopher, explaining your understanding of their hypotheses and how they reflect the thesis of the paper. Prioritize unquestioned authorities: Aristotle, Einstein, Socrates, 20th century academics - do not use recent scholars, especially media darlings. Mistakes: To be or not to be? An overly philosophical approach to the problem will lead to a loss of firm ground and turn the essay into meaningless abstract reasoning. State a concrete, not too radical opinion. Argumentation There should be several reasons determining your position on the question posed: describe each of them in detail in a separate paragraph, trying to observe the semantic sequence. Do not deviate from the topic and do not forget that if the logic of the work requires it, the thesis can be placed in the last paragraph. Play on contrasts and contradictions, denote the inconsistency of the commonplace view of the subject with the scientific one, put an obstacle that is not easy to overcome. Give priority to students who not only know how to solve a problem, but also how to discern it. Mistakes: Questionable argument. Remember that the very notion of an argument implies that it is true - you should not cite someone else's speculation as evidence. Don't repeat it twice. The same idea, in other words, expressed in a different paragraph, will give the impression that there is nothing to say. Conclusion In conclusion, you should not repeat what has already been written - briefly finish your thought, write a thesis statement if you decide to leave it for last. The conclusion should be polished and elegantly summarize the previous reasoning. A good way is to share the experience of writing this particular essay: tell what proved to be the most difficult, what ideas you had to discard during your reasoning, and which ones were a revelation to you. Mistakes: New arguments. The conclusion is to summarize all of the above, this part does not imply the appearance of additional arguments: if there are still thoughts, add an additional paragraph. It will be superfluous to describe the structure and content of your work at the end - they speak for themselves. The conclusion is intended to give the reader a sense of completeness and completeness.   Related Resources: Differences between essays and other creative works Checklist for a good essay The difference between an essay and a term paper Structure of the essay

      And here is another site that I will add to the favorites list. I'm glad I found these satirical essay topics so quickly. Perhaps now I will not have to surf the web anymore.
