Fishing/camping in other states--licensing??

Recommended Posts

Guest

Fishgirl is going on vacation.
Fishgirl likes to drive many miles through many states, stopping wherever.
Fishgirl sometimes finds cool campspots in the middle of nowhere near a stream.
Fishgirl wants to fish, but Fishgirl has only a MN license.
Fishgirl cannot reliably predict what state and what time of day/day of week the urge/opportunity may come.

--What can Fishgirl do?

Thanks!!!!

Fishgirl,
I've had the opportunity to take several trips like the one you desribe -- at one point I was on the road for four months. Much like Minnesota, most states offer temporary licenses that can serve your purposes. Depending on the state, licenses are usually good from 24-72 hours and can be purchased for less than $10-15 in most states. Have fun and send us some reports from the road smile.gif

Hey fishgirl, are ya single? ;D

But seriously, have fun. I know that Montana offers temporary licenses rather cheaply -- I did that a couple of summers ago (which also led to me refusing to believe that "trout" exist...).

well, if you come to FL, send an email to let me know you are in the area and after you buy a temporary license i'll introduce you to some GREAT bass fishing.

I've always thought a forum like this could help us wandering fisherpersons find a local who'd enjoy teaching us the local waters. I'll be in Detroit Lakes and Ely areas this summer. Hooking up with guides to show me around but most people don't want to spend that kind of money.

This sounds great--but what sorts of places sell these sorts of licenses? I ask because again, I may stop in the middle of nowhere on a Sunday, and there may not be a store nearby and all...makes it sort of tough.

Thanks!

As much as I hate myself for uttering this word: Walmarts often have sporting goods departments that sell licenses.

Sounds kinda like you've never been on one of these willy-nilly fishing road trips before. smile.gif

Small towns are shut down on Sundays. Stop at the local corner convenience store and ask where a person can get a fishing license.

Here's a trip for you: drive down 169 to I-90. Go west, past the corn and bean fields until you hit the Missouri River. Stop and fish. Drive west farther. Pull off the interstate and drive down a gravel road. Pull into a ranch house and stop and ask if they have any bass dams on their land. Ask permission. Fish.

Drive west to the Black Hills and fish for trout and/or bass.

Drive north to 212 and turn right. Go to ranch house. Repeat. Go to Missouri River. Repeat. Go to the Glacial Lakes Region and fish again.

Drive home.

That should take you 7-10 days if you dawdle...6 if you don't.

Good luck and take pictures.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
