Fishing Regulation & License Info
We fish from 2 different Lakes, in 2 different states, and target as many as 7 different fish species throughout our season. Due to this there is a long list of rules and regulations depending on the species and locality. It is important to know that every adult in your fishing party will need a fishing license. Which means if we are fishing in Michigan waters anyone who is 17 years of age or older will need a fishing license. If we will be fishing in Ohio anyone who is 16 years of age or older will need a fishing license.
