Ohio Wildlife Council OKs 3rd fishing line for Lake Erie, Ohio River

Council approved the use of three lines per person while fishing on Ohio’s portion of Lake Erie, including areas immediately upstream in creeks, rivers and tributaries, as well as the western and eastern units of Ohio River. Regulations allow a person to fish with up to two lines in the remainder of the state.

Out-of-state anglers convicted of walleye poaching on Erie

During their sentencing in Ashtabula Municipal Court, each angler was ordered to pay a fine and restitution for 99 walleye, totaling a combined $9,360 in court costs and restitution. The judge also revoked their Ohio fishing licenses for three years. All six anglers were added to the Interstate Wildlife Violator's Compact, which could cause them to lose their fishing rights in 46 other states.
