2. Keeping northern pike? Be prepared to measure the fish
Are you planning to fish a Northern Pike this fishing season? It is advised that you first study the rules and prepare to measure the fish.
Minnesota has three northern pike zones with different characteristics of pike population across the state. Please find the zone regulation and zone map on the DNR’s website and the Minnesota Fishing Regulations handbook.
There will be special regulations for individual lakes, rivers, and streams and must be prioritized over the zone regulations. The zone regulation does not apply to border waters.

3. Be safe on the water
While boating, you are required to pay attention to safety, wear a life jacket and boat sober, and put away distractions while boating. Life jackets are like seat belts— they will not work if you don’t wear them. Accidents will happen quickly, and it is better to be preventive and wear life jackets at all times during boating.
