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.
