The Dakotan:
This is Outdoor Issues with Neil Roberts and North Dakota Game and fish outreach biologist Greg Gullickson.

Neil Roberts:
In the midst of a holiday weekend and beyond. A reminder today to young boaters on rules and regulations. Greg, what do you have for us?

Greg Gullickson:
Yeah, and it comes with a North Dakota state law that does require youth ages 12 to 15 who want to operate a boat or a personal watercraft by themselves with at least a ten horsepower motor. You must first pass the state's boating basics course and of course is available for home study by contacting the game and fish department either at or three to eight 6300 number or at gift at Indeed.com. There are also two commercial providers that offer the course online and the links are also found on the game and Fish Department Boating Water Safety Education Page. The home study course from the game of Fish is free but students are charged a fee to take it online. The online provider charges for the course and not the game at Fish. And it's a great course. You know, the course covers legal requirements, navigational rules, getting underway, accidents and special topics that affect us on the water, such as weather rules of the water laws, life saving and first aid. And also for you adults out there, I certainly encourage you to take the North Dakota boat safety course myself. I see a 15% of my boat insurance just by taking that car. So it's a good thing to know the rules of the road when you're driving the vehicle. But there are also rules on the water to learn as well.

Neil Roberts:
All right. Good stuff, Greg. And hey, an important reminder on live bait when we come back.

Neil Roberts:
Aquatic Nuisance Species has been a talking point for years. What should anglers remember with live bass Greg?

00;01;38;29 - 00;01;55;27
Greg Gullickson:
Probably one of the main things is you can't transport live bait in North Dakota in a container with five gallons or more water. And anglers are also reminded that it's illegal to import minnows or other forms of live bait, such as leeches or frogs into North Dakota. When he purchased that live bait dude from a licensed retailer.

00;01;56;03 - 00;02;00;09
Neil Roberts:
All right. Good stuff, Greg. And that'll bring you a wrap to this report. Until next time. I'm Neil Roberts.
