Take a kid fishing Weekend
Taking Kids Ice Fishing
Ice Fish for Free
January 14-16, 2017
Take-A-Kid Ice Fishing Weekend: Residents fish or spear fish for free when accompanied by a child age 15 or under.
Catch some quality family time and plan a special ice fishing weekend.
Learn about fishing basics, check regulations and find places to fish using LakeFinder at Fish Minnesota. Trout fishing is also an option for the weekend. A trout stamp is only required to fish for trout when an angling license is also required. Because people fishing with a kid don’t need a license on Take a Kid Ice Fishing Weekend, the stamp requirement also does not apply.
For new, clear ice only
2″ or less – STAY OFF
Note: these guidelines are for new, clear solid ice.
White ice or “snow ice” is only about half as strong as new clear ice. Double the above thickness guidelines when traveling on white ice.
