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."

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
