Report poachers to ‘TIP’ line

Anglers throughout the state can do their part to protect Ohio’s high quality fishing by reporting fishing violations they observe to the Turn In a Poacher hotline at 800-POACHER or online at ohiotip.com, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife.
Each year, the TIP hotline receives approximately 4,800 calls from concerned citizens reporting violations involving the poaching, or illegal taking, of fish and game, trespassing, commercialization of wildlife and the over-harvesting of fish and game. Since its inception in 1982, more than 3,000 convictions have been made using information from the hotline. While the majority of TIP reports are received during the hunting seasons, anglers should remember that the TIP hotline is available year-round.
