Anyone know of a place where fishing openers are listed out by each individual state?

Considering plenty of states have no closed seasons, or complicated seasons.. no.

I too know of no website that has that information.. As far as I know there are only a hand full of states that have closed season, all along the Canada border. Im sure some states have a closed season for trout or such though.. then again, maybe not.

With 140+ views; if 1/2 of the views would pick a separate state and search the Internet we would all have are answer.

WOW could be a new fishing book which would include:

1. Opening dates

2. Boating regulations (AIS decals / drain plugs)

3. Etc.

Here are the links to the general fishing page (or whatever I could find that was similar) for all 50 states. Some states are as strict as MN, most are more lenient and allow fishing year round, and most pay far less in user fees than we do to fish. That said, for my buck, I'll take our state and the excellent fishing here to be a sign that our conservation is working. And you're welcome...this took a long time smile

Most states don't have 4.7 BILLION dollar fishing industry with 40,000 connected jobs that they need to manage.

Very good point to take into consideration. Comparing a state with 10,000 lakes to a state with <100 lakes is comparing apples to oranges. Funny and ironic how people still like to make the comparisons tho.

The MN page(s) in this book will have to be hot-swappable since the regs change on almost a daily basis depending on which way the wind is blowing. smirk

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
