Bringing fish across the border

8 posts in this topic

What is the current limits of fish you can bring back to MN from Ontario?

Any links to the Ontario Fisheries?

Thanks

I believe it depends on the type of license you purchase. If you're talking 'eyes, a conservation license allows a possession of 2 and a sportsmen's license allows a possesion of 4. Could be wrong, though. I always get the conservation and just bring two back.

That is a great question that I knew the answer to but how about how you bring them across the border? I always bring them back gilled and gutted. Is there any other way to bring them back? Cause that is such a pain in the butt.

We bring them back filleted and skinned, leaving the last 2" or so of skin on w/ scales, packaged in freezer bags, 2 fish to a bag, in coolers w/ ice. The place we stay has a chest freezer in the cleaning house so freezing the fish, along with a couple of frozen milk jugs in the cooler keeps them pretty cold for the 10hr. ride south.

We do the same as Wallyeyes. Leave a chunk of skin on there so they can identify the fish and you will be fine.

Reading the regs though it is my understanding that because like Lake of the Woods is a slot lake you can not do that? Please let me know if I am wrong! I would love to be able to just leave a chunk of skin on.

This is from the Ontario MNR HSOforum. It's an excerpt from their regulations and halfway through there are tips for packing your fish with pictures too. Either a patch or whole skin is OK.

If you are going somewhere other than Ontario I would check their regs.

    • I've been using paddle tails and twister tail grubs as trailers this summer. I wish more companies made bladed baits, but I've just been buying Z-Mans because of the availability and price. 
    • cool story! I hope you get another crack at it next year!
    • When I had my internet service through the phone company it would go kaflooey every fall.  The guys would come out and clear out the mouse nests in the junction box out front.  The house was built in 65 and the phone line is underground.  One guy spent a lot of time out here and finally concluded that the underground line was shot and it would require mega screwing around to replace it.  He then came into the house and said that the phone lines run throughout the house were also shot and would have to be redone.  I switched to getting service from the cable company rather than having to spend so much to get things squared away.
    • Exactly! I love how people claim a candidate they have been backing won. As if there is any objective value in their opinion. Like I said before, the bar for POTUS is so low right now the best argument either side has is "your candidate is worse"
    • I agree with Mike#1
    • The polls are deceiving. The cattle, if they actually vote, are not the pollster types. Upper white collar, college stus and politely active are. Like my mother and family down in Florida.  Not online pollsters, not on a call list, don't answer phone after 7 because there is work tomorrow. My mother never votes. Good person but that old school soft racism which is never in play except the last year with all the tension going on. Hates Obama and sees Hillary as an extension of him. Point is, there is a possiblity, what I see on personal media, a lot who wouldn't vote, don't take polls, don't participate politically, have a strong side for Trump.  50/50 at best if they'll vote though. To be fair, I see the Bern crowd, huffing and puffing but more to the effect of what a joke trump is and seems a Democrat vote.    
    • We should probably learn to live on this planet before we mess up another one. Luckily our scientist lack the imagination to get us off this rock.
    • I may have missed it, but I don't believe they even discussed The Wall....
    • I was having issues with my ISP service recently same symptoms. I work from home and it kept randomly dropping and just got worse and worse. They sent a tech out and he redid all the cable terminations and also switched out some connection in the cable underground and he said they can go bad over time and I haven't had any issues since. They should be able to measure signal strength and know right away when they are onsite if you have any issues.
