New fishing tournament rules reduce fees, offer more exemptions
New rules for Minnesota fishing contests in 2010 may exempt some tournament organizers from permit requirements and will reduce permit fees by half, but charitable organizations will no longer be exempt from fees.
Anglers and others who want to host fishing tournaments in 2010 can submit applications now. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will give preference to applications received by Friday, Sept. 25.
