Do I need to get a 2009 license if...


Recommended Posts

I only plan on fishing for carp, and rough fish on the Mississippi this coming spring? Reason I ask is I won't be fishing past the first week in July as we are expecting our second child then, but up to that date I want to fish for Carp in the river. But I really don't want to spend the money for a license if I can fish all year.

Do you even need a license to fish for rough fish?

Do you have License now? If you do that license is now good until May 1st 2009..... anything after that date you'll need a New License or you'll be subject to a really steep fine if caught fishing without a Valid Fishing License.

Not worth it!

licenses are good for 14 months, aren't they? so they shouldn't all expire on may 1st right? it depends on what time of the year you bought it I assume.

Unless I'm totally confused about how licensing works in MN

2008 angling licenses are not valid after 4/30/2009, regardless of when you bought them.

The only time I ever got a ticket from a CO was when I was about 19, I was at the Coon Rapids dam fishing for carp. I was sure I would not need a license for "rough fish" but I got a 70$ ticket! I took it to court (one of the reasons I had no license was because I was broke. I thought carp fishing was a cheap date) and ended up having to only pay 35$, but still, I should have known better. I have had a MN license and trout stamp every year since then (and WI too for most seasons), and I usually get mine as early as I can.
