Posession?

Recommended Posts

Super Target had some Walleye fillets on sale. I picked up a few packs. How does this impact on my posession? Does this count against my posession limit of 12? Do I need to eat these before my weekned trip?

Apply that reasoning and you'd have to purchase a trout stamp if you bought rainbows in a meat market.

possession limit of 12? What state are you
in? Minnesota possession and daily limit
are the same.

No, not as long as you can prove you purchased them from a store. The store is also responsible for making sure they came from a licensed packer(Commercial Fishery)ScottS

Target walleye?

Is that like Pamida Panfish or Kmart crappie or maybe CostCutters catfish?

Did you know that fishmongers could call fish whatever they want legally?

Odds are very good they are something-called walleye, but not walleye. Kinda-sorta like chicken nuggets.

Just to RANT a bit, I refuse to buy ANY gamefish from any store or market.

WHY?

Well if you eliminate the demand, you will eventually eliminate the @%^%# nets on lakes and rivers.

But, hey eh, that’s just me.

According to Sea Grant (Ohio State Univ campus institute) there are 19 different species of fish that appear on restaurant menus and in markets by the name of perch.

FDA guidelines are pretty broad when it comes to fish labelling. I've had restaurant "walleye" (most often listed as "walleyed pike") that did not even have the correct shape to be walleye. When depth is close to half the length, it ain't no walleye.

I checked your profile and you list your address as Minnetonka,Mn.
You better read the Minnesota Fishing Laws a little better!
The posession and daily limit for walleyes is 6 fish per lic. family member or family member under 16 years of age.

I have read my Minnesota Law Book.

So with that being said, what if I go to Rainy Lake, (other then Black Bay), take my limit of 30 Crappies, and go home. How do I prove I was on Rainy Lake?

My real point here is we can think of a whole bunch of b.s, start a bunch of politics, have this thred run 200 posts, and still be no further then we are now. Infact, we could probably confuse a bunch of people.

Let the "What if's" go, and go fishing.

just my 2 pennies.

Hi Pro Crappie Guide, I used to live in
Aitkin (long ago). I agree these posts
can lead to long threads.

I have been corrected on things I thought
to be true my whole life, thanks to internet
fishing boards. I have also read lots of
misinformation someone claims to be gospel.

What do you do? Let the misinfo live on or
offer a correction.?

Scott S you are absolutely correct regarding
store bought fish. They are usually packed
in something other than a ziploc, but right
is right.

This will pop up again and again and for
this time, take it or leave it...Possession
limit and daily limit are the same in
Minnesota.

Better to find out hear than have a game
warden explain it to you in your cabin.

Hey Cliffie, take a pill. Nobody practices catch and release more than I do. I can't remember the last time I kept a walleye. Some of you people are just a bit too intense.

My question had to do with not wanting to break the law so chill.

Actually Pro Crappie Guide when regional possession limits vary it is the license holders’ responsibility to gain a transportation and storage permit from a DNR or other game official.

It may also apply when transporting game from state to state some require transport documentation.

That way you have nothing to worry about.

So what constitutes travel documentation?

I assume it's more than a note from my mom. grin.gif

SuddenlySummer....I think Scott S has the best answer...just save the receipt. It's an important issue to consider. Anyone have a pack of mystery meat in the freezer from last season? Some folks forget about the possession limit. We checked in to putting together a freshwater aquarium at the store...to stock it with a few bass and small northerns...kind of an attractant. In addition to the special permits to put it together, the fish in the tank would count toward possession limit. Good for all of us to keep it in mind!

Extension of the question: Does the mounted trophy count toward possession?
Discuss....

I highly doubt that store bought carp... passed off as walleye are going to count as part of your possession limit. And for that matter... why would the DNR be coming and looking in your freezer? They don't just bust through your door to check for 7 walleye/carp from the grocery store.

I've got a better solution to all of this... Go out and CATCH some real bonafide walleye.

GOOD LUCK!!!! smile.gif

A little common sense can go a long way in these cases. If you are unsure, ask "your" CO. He/she is most likely the one who will be checking you.

And, again, fish bought at a store do not count towards your possession limit if you have proof they were bought from a store. That store is resposible for making sure they are from a licensed packer.ScottS

I think Rusty has a point. The dnr doesn't often knock on doors checking for possession violations. In the case of gross daily bag limit violations they go to the home of the poacher and check for more, maybe. But on the norm if you have it at home it's safe. Alot of people know that and take advantage.The possession law is an honor system for the most part. Like most laws those that don't think they apply to them don't care.I think most of us do.
Have fish for dinner and you won't have so many in your freezer.
Good fishing

Soooo, can we say end of story? Has the question been answered more than once again?
Geeee, I wonder if the walleye digesting in my stomach from my shore lunch will prohibit me from catching and keeping a limit of walleye? On and on and on!

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
