You have to carry a paper copy on all border waters and the Great Lakes, even residents do. PERIOD

Is checking with the state to see if you have the state's permission to fish within the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard?

i don't beleive that it is. If it is I can't believe it! If a cop or a Coastie wants to see my fishing license then  they can call the warden as far as I'm concerned, it's not the  cop or Coastie's department.

i think the only reason your drivers license ain't enough is because the states' department of natural resources do not communicate with each other.

Nope, your Go Wild card is NOT as good as a printed copy on border water. The reason you need the printed copy is if you get checked by a warden from another state or the Coast Guard. Neither has the tech to swipe or scan your Go Wild card to see if it is up to date. 

Just trying to help folk to not get a ticket.

That's good info. I've got my non-resident license posted to my Go Wild card. I assume that card is the equivalent of a paper copy if push comes to shove

No, as long as you have a PDF stored to your phone and you are fine with all inland lakes.  If you fish the Mississippi river, St Croix river, Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, or any other smaller bodies of water that intersect other states, you need to carry a paper copy.   

  

Please let us know if you have any questions. 

  

Thank you - Wade

Just under your stamps it says:

"Anglers MUST carry a paper copy of their license/stamps while fishing on the waters of Lake Michigan, Lake Superior and the WI/MI, WI/MN ad WI/IA boundary waters."

Read the rules before going on the big lakes. Take care and good luck.

I have purchased  my 15 day NR. License and downloaded  a  copy to my phone. Do I still need a printed copy as well ?
