last time I was there looked into getting an out of state license. was quite expensive and I decided against it. you may want to check out other states, SD, etc. Missouri had a by the day setup you could pick and choose any assortment of days you wanted. and they have "real" fish there.

You really don't fish a lot do you.


not quite sure how you came to that conclusionbut since I own a house on a lake, you are wrong. Just making the point that Missouri has real game fish, LM bass, instead of 6 inch trout to catch.

Some of the worst fishermen live on lakes....

Ah, Bumpy,MN has great fishing, with plenty of "real" fish, including LM bass. Or walleye, pike, musky, SM bass and plenty more. Not sure how you came to the conclusion that 6" trout was all it has to offer, but I can assure you from my own fishing trips to MN that statement of yours is WAY off base.

It has been a few years since we have been to MN wife has family there and I enjoy the area. Last I remember the cheapest fishing license for a short stay was the 10 day husband and wife combo. IIRC it was cheaper than a 3 day for an individual. Jim.

I agree since both of my grandparents were from MN, Tyler and Askov, and I spent a lot of time fishing in MN. just was a bit upset at their extremely high temp fishing license cost. my 6" trout was referring to what some trout fishermen consider to be game fish, I consider to be bass bait.

Maybe "Livin Good" could list the record catches for each species of fish at all of the Minnesota lakes?!

I was curious if the cost of a non-resident MN fishing license was still high. a 7 day license is $28.00, 24 hour 8.50. I buy annual non-resident licenses for about $30-35 in PA, etc.
