"Take A Kid Ice Fishing Weekend" Is Coming Up

Wed 1-12-2022

Minnesotans will be able to fish without a license this upcoming weekend, provided they take a young angler out with them. January 15th through the 17th will see "Take a Kid Ice Fishing Weekend," throughout Minnesota. Kids 15 years and younger can go out ice fishing without a license any time of year. The event is mostly for those parents or friends who would normally need a license, and this weekend they'll be able to go out without one. DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen says it's a great way to spend time together and get kids outdoors.
