Balsam can be a hit and miss lake I find, itís also a tough lake to find shelter when itís windy, the weekends are usually busy with boaters and seadoos that donít always show water respect, but it does have some nice weed lines and drop-offs, Iím hoping the weeds are to the top this weekend 😊

I might be wrong but I thought per Ontario Recreational Fishing Regulations, any out of season fish (such as smallmouth bass at this moment, which is still prior to its opener) if caught must be IMMEDIATELY released (not after a photo)?:-)

Out-of-season fish pictures. MNR answers the question.

The regulations state that if you catch a fish species for which the season is closed, you are required to release it immediately back into the water in a manner that causes the least harm to the fish. If you were to take a photo of the fish in question, this would not constitute an immediate release, resulting in a violation under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act (FWCA). Also, fish that are not immediately released count toward your possession limit which could lead to an additional violation (i.e. keeping a fish that is out-of-season).

We hope you find this information helpful. If you require further assistance please contact the Natural Resources Information Centre at 1-800-667-1940.
