Anglers are reminded that 2013 fishing licenses expire on Friday, Feb. 28, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said.
Fishing licenses for 2014 now are available from DNR license agents, online at www.mndnr.gov/buyalicense and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2014 fishing licenses become effective Saturday, March 1.
Customers who purchase online via smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers.
Ice shelter permits for 2013 remain effective through Wednesday, April 30.
