Minnesota fishing licenses

Minnesota fishing licenses – who needs them? Where to get them?

Fishing Minnesota waters of lake superior requires a Minnesota fishing license and a trout  stamp. Or a 24 hr Minnesota license (No Trout stamp required). If you are a senior citizen, 65 or over, a trout stamp is not necessary. If you are 15 or under you do not need either.

Due to the recent change to electronic license sales, the captains are no longer able to supply season licenses or trout stamps. (we sell 24hr licenses only). Fees for the 24hr license is $11.00 for Minnesota residents and $13 for non-residents .
