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.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
