NDGNF Reminds Anglers of New Regulations

Recommended Posts

Anglers fishing North Dakota waters this winter are reminded of new regulations implemented since last year.

A new regulation of which winter anglers should be aware is removal of the maximum size (12 inches in diameter) hole for ice fishing. Anglers can now fish in the same hole in which they spear fish, and anglers should note that possession of a spear is counted as a fishing pole. In all cases, when a hole greater than 10 inches in diameter is left in the ice for any reason, the hole must be adequately marked with a natural object or painted wooden lath visible from a minimum of 150 feet.

Other new regulations include two weeks added to the end of the darkhouse spearfishing season, and 16 additional lakes are open to darkhouse spearfishing.

Anglers should also take note of two regulations that have been clarified. It is illegal to discard any fish or fish parts upon the ice, in the water, or upon the shore of any water body in North Dakota. It is also illegal to introduce any substance in waters of the state for the purpose of attracting fish that are not attached or applied to a lure.

As in the past, anglers are reminded that stocking of any live fish into any waters of the state is illegal, except with the appropriate license or permit issued by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.

Anglers are also reminded that McDowell Dam (Burleigh County) and Lightning Lake (McLean County) are closed to fishing from November 1 through March 31 of each fishing year.

For a complete list of winter fishing regulations anglers should consult the North Dakota 2008-10 Fishing Guide.

    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
