Conservation Officers on ScugogI

Recommended Posts

I have been checked twice this week on Scugog. I think it is great! The second boat, last night, was doing a survey. They did not want to see paperwork, just asked about fish. The pickerel have been eluding me so I didn't have much to tell them.

I like being stopped by COs

 

I don't like being stopped by Cops

 

 

 

on LakeSimcoe there are 7 different forces and they don't talk to each other about the 7th time I get stopped on a weekend I lose it

You would think that they would come up with some kind of "tagging" for your boat to show that you had been checked on a given day. Just a brightly coloured piece of paper, it could be held up before they even got close to ID you had been checked on a given day. This would allow more time to check others who haven't been. Rotate through a selection of colours to avoid "cheaters". Yes there would be some costs involved but you'd have some happy boaters.

CO's I welcome with open arms. The creel study folks.. not so much. Finally get on a good spot at dusk, the fish start to bite and someone pulls up in a boat to ask how the fishing is :wallbash:

 

Being hassled continuously by the same OPP marine unit on the same lake :wallbash: ...but last year they either had their budget reduced or finally realized I'm the only boat of it's kind on the lake and started driving by with a wave.

We were stopped on Erie by pelee island a few weeks ago.... the OPP boat gave us a yellow sticker and said " put this on your boat where it is visable, that way if another OPP boat comes by, you just point to the sticker and they know you have been checked ! "

 

They were doing there "random safety checks" on the lake that day..... 2 out of 3 strikes (no anchor and no flash light ) ... you were good to go ! 3 strikes... you got a ticket hahah

i have been stopped several times this year on scugog by both the OPP and MNR. the cops did a very thorough search, including checking my storage compartments and cooler. the mnr i see quite often now and am aware of the routine so its normally pretty painless. i barely even have to bring in my rod when mitch pulls up now, he just cruises beside me while i show him everything.

 

on a side note i was up at my cottage on three mile lake this weekend and OPP were out in full force pulling everyone and there uncle over. I was pulled over on thursday night at 8PM!!! i saw the ticket book coming out several times after they flagged down a boater. lots of seadoo's getting pulled over too. was nice to see that
