2020/21 fishing licenses

Recommended Posts

DonkeyHodey

Just reminding everyone, your current license expires in 11 days.  Thanks to leap year, you get one bonus day to fish this year.

2020-21 licenses will be going on sale today, according to the DNR.

(CO's are usually out in force on 3/1...)

I'll add on to that: permanent houses must be removed in the southern portion of the state by March 2.

 

The DNR has indicated in the past that any permanent house not removed by the deadline (and not occupied over night) is subject to citation and/or removal.  I know this caused a lot of problems last season because the weather/conditions made it very difficult to remove a house.  But the date is set months in advance so plan ahead.

Just a dumb question because i had someone ask me. Does anyone know if a person bought a 2020 license, would it be valid the rest of this season or starting March 1st.

New licenses start on March 1st of the year they’re bought for.  Says the valid date right on the license to avoid questions.

I’m glad there shouldn’t be any issues in my area.  First time in many, many years I’ve left a hard side out.

Too late for me.  I already bought my married sportsman license.  So really I don’t even know if I had the option.

I buy a conservation license.  Its half the cost of a traditional license and allows me to keep half a limit.  I release 95% of what I catch anyways.

Wanderer don't feel bad I had my husband wife fishing license before I heard about this also. Being the nice guy Moose is he sent me a text about this super license and my bad I didn't get to take advantage of it.  Have to admit I never heard of it but once I looked into it looked like a great deal. You win some you loose some just a part of life . 😀

@IceHawk

 

I kinda wanted to P&M about the DNR not advertising it some, like in Outdoor News or something!  But I gotta admit it’s my responsibility to look into it.  I’m still surprised there wasn’t any any promotion so I hope they don’t complain we were “slow to adopt it/not much interest”.

 

Oh well, I’ll just continue to carry around multiple blue pieces of ink fading plastic in my wallet again this year! 🙃

I only heard about it because I was trying to get a state park application for a deer hunt in Grand Marais and the guy at bucks handed me a list of all the licenses. I asked about it and why did I not know about this he said he did not know about it either. I think it’s a good deal

      Have hope. I feel as fisher people we have hope. If we were not hopeful, we would not spend time fishing. Please check out our latest adventure and stay HOPEFUL.

      gonna put this out there cuz it really is good. Lol. Cottage cheese. Ketchup. A little mayo. I have always hated cottage cheese straight but have been eating this since I was a kid. With wavy or regular potato chips. And I still love it!! Lol. I might have to try it sometime with a little bbq sauce. 🤪

      Hello fishingminnesota! Newbie here with an abundance of freetime thanks to the virus.
      For way too long I was too busy to get out. I have lost time to make up! It's early in the spring season but I'm dying to get out there and find some good fishing spots. I frequent trails around Eagle lake, Medicine lake, the parkway lakes (Harriet, Lake of the Isles, Bde Maka Ska, etc), and sometimes the coon rapids dam. I hope this is the year I finally hook my first catfish (that isn't a bullhead). Also looking into raising my own worms...
      I'm ambitious 😅

      Can you help others here by letting us know....
       
      What are you grateful for?
       
      It would be great if we could see what you are appreciative of everyday. Kind of a community journal. 
       
      For inspiration and a time to reflect on the wonderful things that surround us during changing times.

      Well, with the extra time we have on our hands, I decided to do a little spring cleaning. I have 3 Antler mounts I don't plan to use anymore, I switched to the boil method. I will sell these for $20 or b/o each. $50 takes all 3.

      Found a tackle box up on Lake Osakis this morning. It wasn't in any of the community spots or I wouldn't of found it with amount of guys up there. LOL!  Wow you would think the Caughren point area was the only place to catch and sight fish.They should of been there a week and a half ago when we found them fresh 😲   Glad I have better spots where social or should I say solo distancing was happening 😉 If anyone lost one out there off the beaten path I found it feel free to PM me with the contents and Ill get it back to you somehow. If nobody claims it I'll donate it to a kid (and No not you Smurfey 😂) to get him a good start into ice fishing some good stuff in there!

      Saw 2 big Toms strutting with a group of 15 hens today. Still grouped up they should be starting to split here more and more in the days to come. Couple rain days and some sun will get some greenery going and fire them up ! Strut Zones will start to appear soon I hope

      Cant even imagine the stories that old cabin could tell. I always love finding things like these. Found some neat old abandoned stuff up in Ely In BWCA years ago.  One of things that has always intrigued me are old broken down deer stands.  Always makes me wonder how many deer were shot or missed or who sat there years ago. One can only imagine some of the deer camp stories that were told from them!

      Unless travel becomes actually restricted, I will be heading up to Vermilion for opener as usual. Like Smurfy, I can and often do go up and back without touching a thing. I can tow up there on one tank of gas, unloaded without touching the dock, fish, be at cabin, and return all with zero interaction. I will have to stop for gas on the drive home but that's not a real issue.   I usually do try to frequent businesses up there to spread my dollars around and infuse "new" money into the local economy, but this will not be one of those times. I am looking forward to opener one way or the other.

      My wife and I practiced social distancing today and took a long drive through the northwoods. Spotted this old log cabin back in the brush.
    • tacklejunkie
      How long do you think it will be before they put the dock in at Rice Landing?   I’ll be heading up towards McQuade either tomorrow morning or Friday morning

      Rice's is ice free but still some ice chunks out there in the bay so slow travel and keep your eyes peeled. Hate to put a hole in the boat this early in the season.

      I'm thankful that I got out of New Jersey safely and virus free, right before the anvil dropped. I then visited my elderly parents in Wisconsin and am extremely thankful that I didn't have any viruses to pass on to them. I know some people that have already died from this thing and know of quite a few others that are on ventilators in NJ and NY.    I am also thankful for internet forums like this one, that keep my mind focused on other stuff! Thanks Rick.
