Regulations for Kids

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'm gonna let you in on a secret that I discovered many years ago on a lake that had low numbers of very large Crappies. We all know that sunset is a time when Crappies become hungry and active. They seem to appear out of nowhere and after a half hour flurry of action, they disappear just as quickly. Often when fishing this lake I would get a bite or two if I was lucky. One night a friend and I were set up in my usual spot and right on time, we started catching fish. We ended up catching over a dozen 13.5"-15.75" Crappies that evening. About halfway through the action, as we realized we were doing much better than I ever had on that lake, my friend commented on the full moon. It was just peeking above the trees, and the beautiful sunset was on the opposite horizon. Not realizing what provoked that prolonged action, we both were eager to go back 4 days later. I got 1 fish, he had 1 bite, as was typical for the lake. Puzzled, we were talking about our last trip, and we came to the conclusion that the sunset and moonrise combo was the cause of the outstanding action. People talk about the full moon creating better activity "because the fish can see better". I am VERY convinced that is NOT the reason.  Musky fisherman know about the power that the moon has. With moon rise, moon set etc. being times when a big fish is more likely to strike.  Other fish like huge Crappies feel the power as well. When the moon is full, moon rise and sunset occur at about the same time. The combination of both high percentage times at once creates a MAGICAL window that occurs once per month.  Since then I have capitalized on this monthly occurrence many many times, for walleye, eelpout and musky as well as the crappies. It is way more than just a coincidence it is MAGIC!! Sometimes the days before and after the full moon are also excellent, occasionally 1 is even better than the full moon night. But any time you are planning a trip for a challenging species or difficult location try to be there at that magical period and you will improve your odds of success.  It doesn't matter if its cloudy and the moon is not visible the magic is still there. Hopefully you can unlock the potential of a lake with this little tip.    Remember that C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) is key to catching bigger fish as well as the key to the future of fishing.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.
