So sure doesn't look like much is changing in the province for 2018. The red text in the exceptions is mostly to do with Aurora Trout. I guess "all is well"with the fish and the present regulations pretty across the province. The FMZ 15 link doesn't open for me. I don't hear anything about fisheries in that part of the province anyway.

Hey Fishchaser, things are good. Was a busy summer, anxious to get the fishing season going now. I think im spending the winter up on Nipissing again this winter. Looking forward to spending my days on the lake.

Hope things are well with you!

Always read the exceptions, can't emphasize that enough.

Also, please note we have a link to the current regs at the top of the page.

I think the link for the regs at the top of the forum needs to be a little more visible so people don't miss it.

Posting a thread when the new regs launch is also a good way to encourage discussion and maybe inform some of the new members or anglers how to properly read and interpret the regulations for a specific zone and or body of water.

From the Exceptions to FMZ 11,
Walleye S-2, none less than 46 cm (18.1 in.)
and C - 1, none less than 46 cm (18.1 in.).

You really have to read them! Not like they were when I started fishing 35 years ago where they were pretty much the same throughout the Province! Don't get burned!

I would say the bright RED circle with the bold Green font for the link is big enough for anyone to see. The sponsors pay for that space, the link is there for eveyones convenience and is at the top of every forum.

Agreed nsfisher.
The regs have always been clearly evident/visible and individually separate from other headings and advertising on the board banner....plus emphasized repeatedly on threads throughout the entire year.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've never noticed it was there

Chevy just proved my point. There you have a very active member on these forums that never noticed that link. Just because you know where to find it, doesn't mean it jumps out at everyone. It's small.

I wasn't suggesting placing it in an advertising spot, but you do have a menu bar with wasted space. What about blending fishing tips and lake info together and placing the regs tab along that bar?

Just a thought.
