Official News release

from news.ontario.ca

moose-reduction-2014To ensure moose populations remain healthy and resilient, Ontario is reducing adult moose tags across the province by about 18 per cent for 2014.

The reductions are in response to declining moose populations in northern Ontario, which were noted by provincial biologists during this winter’s annual aerial surveys. The largest tag reductions will occur in areas with the largest declines.

Ontario has been working with key stakeholders and the hunting community to respond to these changes and plans to seek public input this summer on next steps.

Crainkbaits

I have been walleye fishing all of my life. Each year I try to learn new techniques in order to become a better fisherperson. I have used various crankbaits over the years with some success but I feel there is a lot more that I could learn about how to use them. I was wondering what styles and colours would be the best to start with? I am going to get some original rapalas, as well I also have shad raps and flicker shads. I have used crankbaits on a bottom bouncer before, is this a successful technique? Any help would be appreciated.

Ice lifting?

I heard through the grapevine that black bay is covered in water. Are any other lakes close to lifting? Last weekend for pickerel fishing. That only leaves pike, perch (and maybe specks…not sure) whitefish…

Drinking in the Ice Shack

Question:

With all of the talk about drinking on the ice I would like to know what the real answer. To my understanding the hut needs to fit the requiements of a residence, ie sleeping and cooking facilities. But why the cooking facilities? Are you not allowed to pack a lunch? or have a bunch of sandwiches? Am I not allowed to use a fire to cook my food? It seems to me all that should be requried is a place to “sleep it off”. If cooking facilities are really required and a fire is not considered that, what about in summer when outdoorsmen are out in the bush in only a tent and a fire to cook with, are they consuming alchol illegally? Don’t get me wrong I understand the bigger picture is to prevent impaired driving and I am all for that, just want to make sure my practices are legal.

No Fishing sign clarification

Question:

In regards to the no fishing signs just up river of Edward st, on the neebing river. Can someone stand below the no fishing signs, but cast up into the No fishing area? I did witness a guy standing below the signs (legal) but cast right up to the weir, legal or not? Also, the floodway below Edward, I did not see any no fishing signs below it, is it legal to fish there or not?
