Thread: Household Member Dipnetting Question

    Question Household Member Dipnetting Question

    I'm planning on taking my nephew down to the Kenai with me for dipnetting and the question is: Does his parents need to be present for him to Dipnet for his family? He is 15 and I understand the rules but am not sure if it's legal for him to fish for his family.

    Thumbs up This is how I read the rule...

    His family must have their own PU permit. He can fish that permit and must log his catch on that permit. Since he's under 16, he doesn't need a sport fish license, just the permit that his head of household must obtain.

    Check the general provisions on page 16 of the reg booklet.

    Joat, you are right on. As long as he has the permit for his household he is good to go.

    Thumbs up Nephew's Card

    I just returned from dipnetting on the Kasilof with my nephews. We contact fish and game and they advised pretty much what has already been said here. We had the PU card that their fish were documented on as well as their mother's fishing license (same as name on PU card), just in case some confusion were to arise.
