Ask a conservation officer: Children can keep their own fish limits
Duluth Minnesota 424 W. First St. 55802

Q: When I’m fishing with my daughter, who is 13 years old, can we legally keep two limits of fish?

A: Yes. Resident children younger than 16 who are able to actively take part in the angling efforts are entitled to keep and possess their own limit of fish without purchasing a license. Nonresident children younger than 16 who are actively fishing and accompanied by a licensed parent may keep their own limit of fish if that parent has a nonresident family license. If the nonresident youth’s parent has an individual angling license, then the nonresident youth’s fish will be included in the parent’s possession limit. If the nonresident youth is not accompanied by a licensed adult, he or she is required to purchase a nonresident youth angling license. See page 10 of the 2014 Angling Synopsis for further details or information.
