Once again, our gov sees a way to help balance their budget. They have to get their fingers in it. I believe it will cut down on the smaller contests... Skeeter

not really.
Fees for a tournament are meant to cover the extra impact the tournament puts on a lake and the extra work it can create for the DNR.

Here is food for your thought, there are less than 225 open water permits last year out of over 600 granted. As the number of anglers per year keeps decreasing and also the # of new anglers. Why would it be the D.N.R chooses to en state the highest permit tournament fee in the U.S.A. on the one of the smallest usier groups.
The statment "Fees for a tournament are meant to cover the extra impact the tournament puts on a lake" is not true, the D.N.R says the fee is what it cost to "coordinate" the permits.
If the statement about the extra impact was true, how could a bass tournament with twenty boats with a 5 bass limit, then release all the healthy fish be charge the same amount as an ice fishing tournament with 10,000 anglers killing every fish they weigh.
Lets really look at the big picture here, in the land of 10,000 lakes we should be the leaders in such an unique American sport, thats right I need to sat it again unique American sport!!
By this fee being enforced I'm am now paying a fee for the use of public water.
Definition of public "accessible to or shared by all members of the community"
I can go on and on about how this state don't know how to earn the tournament buck and how little tournaments really don't effect your life.
But as a very well known angler once told me. If it wasn't for tournaments we would be fishing out of row boats and fishing live bait.

It is just one more regulation that Minnesota loves to come up with. The real question is why
is there any reason to permit any tournament for any lake? They would self regulate and not cost the state a dime. This is just one more example of nothing is allowed in this state.
What is the cost of a permit to hold a bicycle race or a run on public grounds or paths?
For me, I don't care, I have been in my share of tournaments already. I will still fish in tournaments that intrest me. Its the young kids that will not get a chance to fish in them.
I fish in more tournaments in other states now than I do in Minnesota.
The next thing will be to outlaw pre fishing for tournaments.
This is all about GREEDY lake home owners not wanting to share their lake. If you want to see something just wait untill these creeps pass a new gas tax.
