Take a kid fishing weekend starts this Saturday
Take a Kid Ice Fishing Weekend is this Saturday, Jan. 13, through Monday, Jan. 15.
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 DNR. "This weekend is a way to encourage anglers to get out and take a kid fishing."
