BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s darkhouse spearfishing season is underway on most state waters, and the Game and Fish Department is reminding anglers that they need to register before heading out.

The season for northern pike and nongame species opened Tuesday and runs through March 15.

Darkhouse spearing is allowed for all residents with a valid fishing license and for residents under age 16. Nonresidents may darkhouse spearfish in North Dakota if they’re from a state that offers the same privilege to North Dakota residents.

Last year, a record 3,339 people registered to darkhouse spearfish in North Dakota, an increase of more than 1,000 from 2013.
