Statewide bass season opens May 24

(Released May 12, 2014)

Anglers can catch and keep bass starting Saturday, May 24. Anglers can generally keep six largemouth and smallmouth bass combined. A guide to telling the difference between the two can be found on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website.

Some bodies of water have special regulations for bass. To find special regulations, use the DNR LakeFinder function at the Fish Minnesota site. To buy a fishing license, visit any DNR license agent, buy online via mobile or desktop or call 888-665-4236.

After the bass opener, next up for anglers is the muskie opener on Saturday, June 7.
