Regulations for Kids

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if you can keep a limit of fish for kids or not. My son has a lifetime license, so I am assuming that he can take a limit. Any information on the subject would be excellent.

In MN any resident kid under 16 can posess a limit of fish of their own. They need not be with a licensed resident. They can in fact fish on their own and keep fish at any age. They do need to follow laws and regs. NR kids must be with a licensed adult to keep and posess a limit of fish.

I should add that the kid must be fishing, or at least with you when you take the fish. You can not transport his limit with yours home without him accompanying it. Once home they could be considered his limit, ie. fish today take limit, fish tomorrow take limit, you would be legal for posession for the two of you. Ie. 10 crappies yours, 10 crappies his, equals posession limit for the two.

fisherking, I think you are incorrect about the ND law regarding youth limits, I think they are allowed a full limit of their own.

There may have been changes, I'll check with game and fish today and make sure I am accurate. Brent

Kids under 16, including non-residents, can have their own limit if they're a licensed adult.

I stand corrected, ," Any nonresidents under the age of 16 years may take and possess a limit of fish without a nonresident fishing license if accompanied by an adult possessing a valid fishing license." (from ND game and fish)

OK, Here is what the MN DNR says about NR. This is the same as what I was told when buying a NR license in ND Last spring.

e-mail to DNR this question.

If a friend from ND brings his family for the week, and we fish, are

his kids allowed to keep a limit of fish, assuming he is licensed?

Thank you for your time. Brent Olson, Brandon, MN

"Only if the children are covered by a license, i.e. the family fishing

license which covers parents and children under the age of 16.

Otherwise, the children's limits have to be counted in the parents

possession limit if they aren't covered by licenses."

      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

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      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.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      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.
