DNR’s Take a Kid Ice Fishing event planned

Published 9:00 pm Monday, January 8, 2018

Take a Kid Ice Fishing Weekend will be Saturday through Monday.

During the weekend, Minnesota residents age 16 or older can fish or dark-house spear without an angling or spearing license if they take a child younger than 16 fishing or spearing.

“Ice fishing is a fun way to get outdoors in the winter,” said Jeff Ledermann, angler recruitment and retention supervisor with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This weekend is a way to encourage anglers to get out and take a kid fishing.”
