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

      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!

      Here is something we may not of touched yet .   What with the access being shut down on the Rainy river how do we know the opener won't be either shutdown or pushed back? Any rumors or first hand knowledge out there?    Another question what with the current shelter in place regs how will this effect all Minnesota's resorts and campgrounds?  Food for thought my friends.

      Just a heads up to all out walking especially people with dogs. The ticks are out. I've been out shed hunting a lot and scouting for turkeys in the woods lately with my beloved dogs. Pulled off some deer ticks last few outings off both my labs. Time to introduce some preventive tick procedures now if venturing out. For my labs I use Frontline but some other options are Bravecto, Seresto, and at the least a flea tick color. For myself I use a product I swear by I always spray down with Permethrin before venturing out in the woods swamps or fields. I have had great results with this product. Hasn't let me down once!  Lyme disease is nothing to take light of as many people and dogs get infected every year.

      Well as we are facing some crazy times and going into some uncertain times ahead. Stress and anxiety will be at a all time hi. Tension amongst family and friends might be tested to a all time peak. Just wanted everyone to try as best as possible to stay positive optimistic through the whole scenario We will all get through this, maybe in the end it will open all are eyes up to certain ways we live act treat each other . Lets all keep our heads up Positivity is key to better health and a better life. Lets try to help out wherever we can to help our community's and friends neighbors and loved ones. Lets Try not to show the fear we all feel and  face in these unsettled times.  The younger ones especially are kids are looking up to us.  Lets all act like positive role models and do our parts to try and get things back on track for everyones sake.   Many will be seeing some free time ahead with job layoffs business closings etc.  Lets turn those bad situations into good positive ones. Volunteer help a elderly person  neighbor donate to food shelves, etc. 
       
      Lastly we are all family here even though some of us have our differences at times 😉 LOL   FM has always been a safe place our second home where we all feel comfortable a safe place sort to speak. We all come log in  and will especially in these  hard times ahead. Lets get some good topics flowing to ease all our minds. I want to add if anyone ever needs anything I mean anything shoot me a PM Ill do whatever I can to help any way possible. If you need to talk release some stress get some things off your chest or just feel some normalcy in your life  in these strange times holler. PM me and Ill get my number out there to you. We are all in this together no matter our views and opinion. STAY SAFE STAND STRONG MY FRIENDS AND BE HAPPY 😀😀😀

      For those of you that would rather save your money for gas, instead of hoarding hand sanitizer ...
      2 cups of 95% or greater isopropyl alcohol (99% pictured), 1 cup aloe vera gel

       
      Good luck everyone 😉 stay positive and productive. 
      Don't forget to breathe,  there's still lots of ice out there Gustophsen 😆

      They closed the county roads leading to the 4 accesses on Koochiching County.   Fishing and hunting are still allowed.   Looking forward to you getting up here.

      I would go back and read Cliff and Ace and others comments about past openers.    A lot depends on when the ice goes out.     Which end you gonna be at?      And bring warm clothes and good raingear...   I've been snowed on in the past.
    • mrpike1973
      Thanks for the reports. I may go if the wind goes down today may need to pet a few kitties today!
    • CaptJohnWis
      I heard from a buddy that there will be no fishing allowed on the river this spring. Any truth to that? I think it is a good idea otherwise there will be people coming up in droves as usual. Stay in your house and say some prayers.   I am stuck in my house down here in Texas and hope to eventually get back up North. Canada border closed so I couldn't hit my favorite spots on Rainy Lake anyway.

      Alright everyone, since I’m starting to see some open water out here in South Dakota I’m itching to get off the ice fishing talk. Due to the virus, this is likely to be my first opener on Vermilion in about 20 years. What are some strategies that you use that time of year? Depth, presentation, bait etc.    I’ll warm up on the April walleyes out here in the meantime!

      Got home from work while it was raining.  It finally slacked up around 5 and I took a walk around the yard, picked up some stuff, trimmed a few trees and stretched out a little further to figure out a few blind sets for turkey season.  As comfortable as I am with the ground around me, it was worth the scout.  I figured out 3 spots that I hadn’t considered before.     It was definitely refreshing to be outside again and now I can at least have some anticipation for the upcoming season!
    • Wanderer
      Huh, crows.  Interesting.  Never thought about them as a spring shoot type bird.   In prime breeding colors I bet! 😁   I watched a dad gum black squirrel take a hideout in one of my new wood duck boxes tonight.  I think I’ll have words with him tomorrow.
    • monstermoose78
      Went out to break in the shotgun and boy I was shooting way off mark at them crows. Finn sat there watching and shaking his head as I unloaded multiple times. It was fun to shoulder the shotgun again. Might try again tomorrow
