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.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
