A message from your MN-FISH president.
Welcome aboard! Thank you for joining MN-FISH and doing your part for ‘’shortening the time between bites.’’
Our membership list is growing fast and we are moving quickly toward our mission of being a voice for all Minnesota anglers at our state legislature. We are also working with DNR Fisheries to add more transparency to the state’s fish management decisions to keep anglers informed.
The biggest hook in our fishing hat so far is the role MN-FISH played in securing a $200,000 grant for school fishing programs. We also have our legislative sights aimed at modernizing our antiquated fish hatcheries, improving boat launches and building new accesses – plus public shore fishing docks.
We have a long list on our fishing “to do list.’’ That’s why your membership is so important. We want to keep Minnesota the ‘’State of Fishing.’’
