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."

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
