It’s Take Mom Fishing Weekend, Get Out and Enjoy the Great Outdoors
Looking for something to do with your mom this Mother's Day weekend? The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources thinks you should take her fishing, and they have made it very easy.
Mothers who are residents of Minnesota can fish without a license from Saturday, May 7, to Sunday, May 8, during Take a Mom Fishing Weekend.
During the weekend, mothers can fish only for species that have open fishing seasons. Take a Mom Fishing Weekend each year coincides with Mother’s Day, which this year is the weekend before the fishing season opens for walleye, northern pike, bass and trout in lakes.
Fishing is already open for species that are popular among anglers all year, like crappie, bluegill and trout in streams.
