It might be a little harder to get your fishing license at a store this long weekend.
Some businesses have decided not to sell them anymore since the system has gone online. Pokey's Tackle Shop made that decision after estimating it would take $1600 for them to purchase the equipment to do it. Owner Greg Prokopetz says he only makes $1 on each license sold at $30 each.
"Other government agencies that sell licenses get all that equipment supplied to them," he said.
"Plus they get double what we do to sell it."

He hired on extra staff and arranged for more resources to prepare for it; but so far it's been tame.
The City of Regina is sharing its sandbags with you.
Now that water levels have dropped along Wascana Creek, crews have started taking temporary dikes down and are allowing the public to come pick remaining sandbags up for their own personal use.
You can get them at two locations: 15th Avenue and Pasqua Street or Dewdney Avenue and Wascana Creek.
The City just asks you to take the sandbags from the dikes, not from the pallets.
You’ll be able to load them into your vehicle until 8 p.m. Thursday, and again on Friday from 8 a.m until 8 p.m.
