Thread: Easily broken rules/regs

    You can target muskie for C&R only. It's the same as targeting sturgeon in areas where there's a season, but a 0/0 limit. Or, for that matter, fly fishing for trout in streams with a 0/0 limit. I agree it's not a perfect system, since a muskie could come in badly hooked and dying, but the same can happen with an undersized muskie if you have a sport license (Edit - as finsfurfeathers said while I was typing). Anyway that's what the rule is - if it's in season but a 0 limit for your license, you can fish for it C&R. Single barbless hooks are probably a good idea, even if not required.

    The "pose for a photo" thing does confuse me though. I mean I understand you shouldn't do that with an OOS fish, but if it's a fish that's in season but has to be released (due to its size or your limit), I kinda feel like you can... do people catching sturgeon up north or trout in C&R rivers not pose with their catch?

    If that was the case than you would be able to fish for out of season fish as you would be catch an released right?

    No, not at all. You cannot target OOS fish. If in season, you can catch and release until your arm falls off !

    With the c and r trout streams I believe you are mandated to use single barbless hook and no live bait so the chance of killing a fish becomes quite small.

    Yes, that's why I used sturgeon and undersized muskie as examples of fish that could come in dying yet must be released even with a sport license. With the C&R trout, there's still the photo op question.

    finfurfeathers - there's no LIMIT (numbers) on C&R, but there are SEASONS. That's why even sturgeon up north, and trout in C&R rivers, have set seasons even though the limits are 0/0. During the season - catch as much as you want, but release it all; outside of the season - you may not target the species.

    The difference in the two photo op scenarios, is that with an OOS fish, it must be released immediately. Keeping the fish long enough for a photo, could be in violation of the "immediately" aspect. With a C and R, in season fish, it only has to be released in a manner as not to cause harm to the fish. This is likely why photo ops with an in season Cand R fish don't violate the regs..

    Conservation Fishing Licence Tag: A reduced catch and possession limit licence tag that is ideal for anglers who want to live-release the majority of fish caught. Under this licence tag, anglers must immediately release muskellunge, Atlantic salmon and aurora trout. In this summary, C - refers to limits under a Conservation Fishing Licence (e.g., C - 2 = catch and possession limit of 2).

    So after reading this I interpret this as being you may fish for musky however if you catch 1 you must release it immediately so no picture of it.

    You would be correct, in that case.

    Up in Parry Sound there is also a catch and release season for lake trout. The season there is open from Jan 1 to September 30 in the Big Sound. From Jan 1 - Feb 7 it is catch and release only. From Feb 8 - Mar 31...catch and keep 1 fish 24" or less. Apr 1 - June 23 .... catch and release. June 24 - Aug 31...catch and keep 1 fish 24" or less. Sept 1 - Sept 30...catch and release. Oct 1 to Dec 31....closed. When we catch a big one during the open season, we keep it out long enough for a photo then let it go. I'd fight that one in court!!
