Gazelka Supports Fishing License Increase
It was 10 years ago Minnesota set the cost of a fishing license at $17. The Department of Natural Resources says it's to raise the fee to pay for hunting and fishing programs such as the stocking of lakes.
Earlier this week the bill to raise the fee to $22 failed in a committee at the state legislature. State Senator Paul Gazelka of Baxter tells KLKS News, he doesn't know why.
Gazelka supports the fee increase to maintain one of the best fisheries in the country.
