ICE FISHING CODE OF CONDUCT - CODE OF ETHICS

REMEMBER FISHING IS A PRIVILEGE AND A RESPONSIBILITY - NOT A RIGHT!

CONSIDERATION OF OTHERS

i) Be courteous, stay at least 10 meters from other anglers.

ii) Treat your fellow anglers the way you want to be treated.

iii) Other people’s enjoyment is no less valuable than yours

iv) Have respect and consideration for local residents on shore, non-anglers and the environment. Let others enjoy the peace and quiet.

v) Keep your noise and language down. Respect families with children.

HOW YOU FISH

i) Never risk your life or an injury for a fish.

ii) Know the ice conditions, respect them and the weather.

iii) Know the fishing rules and regulations.

iv) Practice good “catch & release” methods. Keep the fish in water and use wet hands.

v) A quick release means better survival. Put fish back promptly.

vi) Fish for yourself. Take only what you need.

GARBAGE AND WASTE

i) DO NOT LEAVE GARBAGE ON THE ICE! That includes, but is not limited to: coffee cups, lure packaging, cigarette butts, fishing line, beverage cans, food wrappers and excrement.

ii) Make sure you have a garbage pail in your hut. Take the garbage home with you.

iii) If inconsiderate anglers have left litter on the ice, clean it up if you can.

iv) Don’t throw anything down the hole.

v) Bring an extra pail if you need a toilet.

Northern Lakes Outdoors believes that ethical behavior is a key component of the angling experience.

The objective of this code is to empower anglers to make responsible decisions in pursuit of their passion.
