License Help....WalleyDan?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I having a problem getting a fishing license for a German exchange student living with me. The problem isn't on the DNR side, it's on the bait shop side. I can't find a store that knows how to deal with a passport, while at the same time issuing a MN resident license. I talked to the DNR and they told me that their computers are set up for this issue, I just can't find a clerk that knows how to set it up. According to the DNR he needs a resident license, not an out state/country one. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas. I live in the Deerwood area and was planning on travelling up WalleyeDan's way this weekend to pick up tickets for the ice fishing contest. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Sorry, I am not walleydan, but...

I would try going to the DMV, they should be able to help you out. At least they should have access to the right resources.

Sorry, I'm not Walleydan either (I'm Walleyedan). I will talk with Sherree at S&W Bait and see what she has to say. We have had people from all over Creation out fishing and there have only been a couple of times where they weren't able to get a license. I would guess she would be able to handle it. But I will talk to her and get back to you.

I just talked with Sherree, it sounds like he will have to get a non-resident fishing license and she can do that by using his passport.

Dan- I could be wrong on this... and maybe its different for people from across the sea.. but I thought students could get resident fishing licence?

Loopholes created by the new system make it tough for

exchange students. frown.gif Should call the DNR office and ask about it.

The regulations do state that a (non resident) student spending a full term school year may purchase a resident license with proof of student status.

If your exchange student gets a student ID card from the school they are attending and shows it to a license distributor, that should work. I know when I went to college in WI, all I had to do was show them the school ID card and my driver’s license. They used the drivers license number as their hunter ID number and I got all instate privileges. MN may be different (and obviously more difficult) but it is worth a shot.

Dan, sorry for the typo. According to the DNR, he does qualify for a resident license. As stated before, I just can't find a clerk that can process it. I'll be in Brainerd this weekend, have to take my VPG back to Gander and get a new one (short in the battery line). I'll pop up to S&W to get my contest tickets and talk with Sherrie.

The folks at Gander in Brainerd/Baxter can help you as long as you get there Friday during the day. They said they'd need to call for a lic# from the DNR office. Bring as much ID as possible.

    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.
