Fishing Lisence Question?

Recommended Posts

Dragon Fish ll

I Have recently been buying 1 to 5 day fishing lisences all over the place. and is getting kind of expensive. I have looked on line but cant find anything that helps me. I keep a yearly MN lisence as well as Ca and somtimes WI. but now I can be fishing anywhere in the US at any given time was wondering if there is fishing lisence you could purchase for the lower 48 or the whole US.You would think someone going on vacation through more than one state could buy somthing like this. I myself drive truck and touch the whole 48. and cant afford 48 fishing lisences. Any help appreciated

I think you are going to have to bite the bullet and purchase the short term licenses. All DNR are state run.

Have you tried to contact the US Fish & Game Dept? They may be able to steer you in the direction that you need to be heading.

fws.gov would be their website

Well I bought my yearly for MN today which is the 18 dollars since Ima resident. I already have my Calif lisence { correctly spelled} for the year. from a family visit. and day after tomorow will purchase a texas yearly non res. lisence at the toon of 50 bucks. gets kind of spendy. other wise 25.00 for a 5 day temp non res. in TX. Im going to be doing more than 1 delivery down that way. some nice lakes and rivers in the Waco Dallas areas.speaking of rivers stopped at the Mississippi today down town at old stone bridge an seen alot of big carp but all I could catch were a few small mouth Bass. cpr of course. But back to lisences take California for instance if you didnt have a birth certificate or state ID from there you would have to pay a non res. price of 80.00 dollars for a yearly lisence.so far this year I have bought temp lisences in AL,11.00. Ms.15,NV.19,Va7.00,MN18,CA.30.00WI,34.00,LA. 14.00and and soon tx 50.00. when coming thru the mountains found honey hole full of trout but could not get any to bite and to far to go for a lisence. but would have been CPR anyway. that was in Montana. lots of trout in stream running right on side of main highway. well anyway I Emailed the fish and game and am waiting for a reply in the week to come. if there is such a lisence I will post it on here.

I agree it's worth a shot to contact Fed. Fish and Game Dept. but I do think they will tell you your only choice is to buy from each state.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
