Dark house pike spear fishing info

Topwater Scott

Recommended Posts

I've been ice fishing in Wisconsin for years and have recently moved to Minnesota and see that spearing certain fish is legal here. I have looked into the regulations but still a bit confused on the rules. Can someone fill me in on the details? Is an additional license needed? Looks like you can take 3 pike with one over 30". Any tips or other information that may help get me and my sons started? This looks like a challenging and fun way to get some pike. Any help would be appreciated.

Spearing is a lot of fun.

First, you need a spearing license. This is seperate from yyour regular fishing license.

You can spear on almost all MN lakes. There are some lakes that are closed to spearing. You should find a list of the closed lakes in the regulation book.

When you are spearing, you can also angle at the same time. You can either have 1 tip-up outside or one jig rod inside your house.

Good luck and welcome to the forum.
