Take a mom fishing

Minnesota Moms Fishing Challenge

It's coming this weekend!

It’s time to get reel, Minnesota moms! Join the Minnesota DNR, Student Angler Organization, and Women Anglers of Minnesota for a free virtual fishing challenge just for moms in Minnesota during Take a Mom Fishing Weekend May 11-12.

This year, like every year on Mother’s Day weekend, all moms across Minnesota can fish for free without a license.

Join the Facebook group to participate in the fishing challenge: Minnesota Moms Fishing Challenge 2024.

How to participate

The challenge will take place in the Facebook group from Saturday, May 11, at 12:00 a.m. until Sunday, May 12, at 11:59 p.m. During that window, submit one photo of each fish you catch. All species and sizes welcome. Snap a photo and let your fish go or keep it for dinner. Bag limits and regulations do apply.

Win prizes

All moms who post a picture of their fish in the group between May 11-12 will be entered to win prizes provided by the Student Angler Organization and their partners, including gift cards for SCHEELS and Lund Boats. An Facebook admin will message winners on that social media platform after the challenge concludes.
