MINNESOTA FISHING LICENSES

Fishing License Requirements and Info

Brindley's Harbor no longer sells Fishing and Hunting licenses. The State of Minnesota has enhanced its online license issuing program to provide 24 hour convenience and reduce issue costs.  Anyone with an active DNR customer record (usually anyone who has purchased a license within the past 10 years) can go online to instantly purchase and print a license.  The previous $3.50 issue charge is now reduced to 3% of the license fee (typically 55 to 80 cents).

Visit the Minnesota DNR site at: MN DNR FISHING LICENSES
