    Go and fish your ass off. I wouldnt worry about it. Only a prick would write you a ticket in this type of situation.

    the problem is, with the state shut down, they have decided that the issuing of licenses is non-essential, while enforcement of licenses remains essential. (to make them look irreplaceable IMO)

    So would you:

    1 cancel the trip
    2 go anyway. don't fish, but enjoy the wilderness
    3 screw them. fish illegally and if fined, ignore it/fight it
    4 screw them. fish illegally and if fined, pay it.
    Alter plans and still go fishing...just go somewhere else. Bad kharma getting caught without a license...especially when the state is already in turmoil.

    Why don't you just fish on the Canadian side? You can only keep what you eat and can't bring it back to the states. Also, can you not get a license from the local stores? I'd call a bait shop or sporting goods store. They might still be able to issue licenses.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Quetico on the Canadian side limits permits so severely that you need to make plans 4-6 months in advance. It is not possible to obtain a fishing license. Some outfitters are taking it upon themselves to take your money and issue there own license with intent to give the money to the state when the license system is online.

    It is being reported in the news that the DNR are not hassling people about the license, but honestly, I would go anyway. I really only obey laws I personally agree with, and requiring a license while not offering a license is a law I would never agree to.

    these are the times when anarchists should really be out preaching.

    the state claims they have a budget problem..

    so they

    1) pay to host a website explaining why they won't take your license revenue

    2) shut down the website that takes license revenue

    3) employ people to enforce laws, so they continue running the expense side, but not the revenue side

    in truth, this has nothing to do with a government shut down. This is a political ploy to cause as much grief for people as possible, then both political parties hope they are the ones that benefit due to the people blaming the other party for the pain.
