  • If you dont have the stamp the cost is $10 to purchase it online for both residents and non-residents or at a store like Cabelas, Gander Mountain, Walmart, Farm and Fleet or a Wisconsin bait shop.
  • Those of you who are coming from out-of-state or do not have a resident Wisconsin fishing license and will be fishing for two days or less the license to purchase is the Great Lake Fishing, 2 day (includes Great Lake Salmon/Trout Stamp) for non-residents or the 2-Day Great Lakes Fishing (includes Great Lake Salmon/Trout Stamp) license which are $14 (same cost for both residents and non-residents). These cover all your charter fishing needs.
