Couple Lecense and Limits

Recommended Posts

I had never thought of this topic before when buying a license for my wife and myself. I had a buddy tell me he thought a person was only allowed one limit with a couple license. After a few sodas and a lot of talk we still don't know. Any help to what is probably an easy question?

Yup, I agree with the above 3 posts.. 2 lic. 2 limits.

This is assuming they did not buy the conservation combination license. If they did, then just 1 limit between the both. If regular husband and wife= 2 limits.

The husband/wife license is not a shared license but two separate licenses and you each must have your own license in possession while fishing. The husband/wife combination license is just offered at a reduced price from two individual angling licenses. If you and your wife are both fishing, you can each harvest your own limit. You do not have to be fishing together but may be fishing separately.

NOTE: This does not double YOUR limit. If you are fishing alone or with your buddies and your wife is not with you, you are only allowed to harvest your own personal daily limit.

This is not quite accurate. A conservation license has a lower limit so you are still both able to take your limit, whatever the legal limit is.

Another example where you have to watch is pike: limit of 3 (w/reg license) while only 1 (conservation limit) per angler.

And this is why your statement, "One limit between both." is not accurate and going to add confusion. In your example above, one limit between both would suggest a limit of three northern when the actual limit is 1 per license therefore 2 if you're both fishing together.

No point in adding confusion. The conservation license comes with a different daily and possession limit and it is not necessarily a given fraction of a regular license limit. Best to read the book.

    • heard from 2 folks who went the other day, their boat not good the other good!!  go figure..  same charter company...
    • Nice fish.  Heading out to Lake Michigan in 2-3 weeks.  Haven't decided exactly where yet.
    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • What port did you head out of Duff?
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time.
