Season and Limit question

Recommended Posts

I live in Cornwall so I fish both Zone 20 and Zone 18. I was looking to go out this year for mudpout/bullhead but looking at the regulations I can not find anything about when the season is open or your limit. I do see channel cat is open all year and the limit is 12 but bullheads are not the same. I can also fins season and limits for crappie, sunfish, pearch, ect.... Since I can not find anything about Bullhead I am assuming ( I know , assuming is dangerous ) that Bullhead is open year round with no limit. Does anyone have any information? Like I said, I have read and re-read the regulations for zones 18 and 20 but can not find anything and I want to make sure I am not breaking any laws. 

Thanks for any help

Eric

I had a similar question a while ago.

This is from the regs-

For unlisted species (e.g., sucker and rock bass), the season is open year-round.

if its not listed there is no regulation concerning the species aside from your standard rules about number of rods used and any bait/hook regulations.

Yes no limits or seasons for bullheads.

Just ensure you are not fishing in a sancuary as this does apply no matter your target species.

What Woodsman said. The areas deemed to be a sanctuary for certain periods can be an issue. You can't plead ignorance either.

LittleWorm, do you catch and release the Bullhead or do you keep a few to eat? I never ate a Bullhead until 10 years ago, they are good out of cold water. I won't eat anything with Mud or Snake in it's name. A bit too early for where we get them. Looking for +8 to 10C air day temps.

I have not fished them in 20 years or so but my dad and myself kept them when we do go out for them. A good deep fried bullhead feed was always tasty growing up.

There are some sactuaries at hooples and on the raisin but the rest of the creeks and bays are good to go 

Thanks Mike, I figure in another week or 2 they should be biting pretty good  I hope.

    • Season or limit for White Bass in southern Ontario?

      Going to Windsor this weekend with a friend for my first time fishing for White Bass.  I cannot find anything on the government website on white or silver bass.  Their possession limits, seasons, etc.  Nothing.   The Detroit river and that area are Zone 19.  The gov. document doesn't list white or silver bass as a species ... not in just Zone 19 ... but not anywhere in the full document.

      I have a chance to pick up a bigger motor for my boat.   I just want some advice on prices, and reliability.  Hopefully I can get some input here.    Here's a quick history.  I run an old 14 Aluminum.  It is deep and wide, and at one point in it's like (before modification), it was rated for a 40Hp.  For a long time, I ran a 1983 25Hp Evinrude, and it would scream across the lake.   But the 83 was really hard on gas.  I got an opportunity of purchase a 1987 Evinrude 9.9 from a good fri

    • TV question...NF

      Hey guys, I bought a new TV this morning and also got a surge protector but have never seen this type before with the connectors on the bottom for cable/sat IN & OUT My satellite cable currently comes from the dish, thru the wall and hooks into the back of my BELL receiver. With this protector do I run from the dish into the "IN" connector then out the "OUT" and then to the receiver ?? If so I'll need to get another length of cable.
