THEWALSH COUNTY PRESS ° WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER I 3, 20 1 7 Page I I BISMARCK, N.D. --North Dakota anglers are encouraged to re- fer to the 2016-18 North Dakota Fishing Guide or the state Game and Fish Department's website for winter fishing regulations. In addition, anglers can visit the Game and Fish website,, for an extensive list of fishing questions and answers. Some winter fishing regulations include: • A maximum of four poles is legal for ice fishing. However, when fishing a water body where both open water and ice occur at the same time, an angler is allowed a maximum of four poles, of which no more than two poles can be used in open water. • Tip-ups are legal, and each tip-up is considered a single pole. • Mechanical devices that set the hook are legal; however, the use of any device that automatically retrieves the fish is illegal. • There is no restriction on the size of the hole in the ice while fish- ing. Materials used to mark holes must be in possession of anglers and spearers as soon as a hole larger than 10 inches in diameter is made in the ice. • It is only legal to release fish back into the water immediately af- ter they are caught. Once a fish is held in a bucket or on a stringer, they can no longer be legally released in any water. • It is illegal to catch fish and transport them in water. • It is illegal to leave fish, including bait, behind on the ice. • Depositing or leaving any litter or other waste material on the ice or shore is illegal. • The packaging offish (including parts thereof) away from one's permanent residence must be done in such a manner that the number offish in each package may be easily determined. • The daily limit is a lil-0i. t offish taken from midnight to midnight. No person may possess more than one day's limit offish while on the ice or actively engaged in fishing. If a situation occurs when an an- gler engages in fishing overnight, the first daily limit must be removed from the ice by midnight prior to continuing to fish. • The possession limit is the maximum number offish that an an- gler may have in his or her possession during a fishing trip of more than one day. • Licensing offish houses ig not required in North Dakota. How- ever, any unoccupied fish house must have displayed on its outside in readily distinguishable characters at least three inches high, either a registration number issued by the department, or the owner's name and address or name and telephone number.
