This weekend, January 15- 17 – coinciding with the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend – it’s Take A Kid Ice Fishing Weekend!
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources are encouraging families to try out ice fishing together – for free!
Minnesota residents can fish or spear fish for free when accompanied by a child age 15 or under.
Kids are always free but this weekend, adults are free too when they take a kid fishing with them.
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.)
