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."

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
