Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: Hunting, fishing, trapping licenses on sale

Ohio’s 2014-15 fishing, hunting and trapping licenses became available for purchase beginning Feb. 22, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

Ohio’s 2014-15 licenses will be valid immediately upon purchase through Feb. 28, 2015. White-tailed deer and fall wild turkey hunting permits will go on sale later this year.

The prices for Ohio’s hunting, fishing and trapping licenses and permits are unchanged from 2013-14.

Licenses and permits can be purchased online at www.wildohio.com and at hundreds of participating agents throughout the state. A complete list of participating license sales agents can be found at wildohio.com. Mobile fishing licenses are now available.

Ohio’s 2014-15 licenses include a transaction receipt and effective dates that match the fishing, hunting or trapping season. Licenses and permits are printed on plain white paper that is not waterproof. Licenses and permits will be printed with additional information relevant to the license or permit purchased.

Limit reduction

Anglers are reminded that the daily limits for walleye were reduced beginning March 1, according to the Division of Wildlife. Beginning March 1, anglers fishing the Ohio waters of Lake Erie are only take 4 walleye per day and the size limit of 15 inches remains in effect.

With so many ice anglers fishing Lake Erie this winter, the Division of Wildlife wants to remind people to be aware of the change. Anglers who fish Lake Erie tributaries in the spring are accustomed to the change. However, it has been several years since ice anglers have had the opportunity to be out during this time period.

“We just want to get the word out to anglers that the daily limit will be reduced beginning Saturday, March 1,” Kevin Newsome, Wildlife Officer Supervisor said. “There are a lot of anglers from throughout Ohio and other states coming up to Lake Erie and we want them to know about the change.”

Through April 30, 2014 the daily bag limit on all Ohio waters of Lake Erie for any combination of walleye, sauger and saugeye is 4 with a minimum size restriction of 15 inches. The daily bag limit has been 6 since last May. Anglers are encouraged to review the Ohio Fishing Regulations for additional information and regulations.

Regulations from May 1, 2014 through Feb. 28, 2015 will be set later this spring after the Lake Erie Committee meeting. For more information about fishing Lake Erie or Ohio’s fishing regulations visit the Division of Wildlife’s website at www.wildohio.com.
