2015-2016 Ohio hunting and fishing licenses available

Ohio’s hunting and fishing license year kicked off March 1 allowing hunters and anglers to purchase their 2015-2016 licenses and many permits, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

The prices for Ohio’s 2015-2016 hunting, fishing and trapping licenses and permits are unchanged from last year. Resident license and permit prices have remained unchanged for 12 years.

Ohio’s 2015-2016 licenses will be valid immediately upon purchase through Feb. 29, 2016. White-tailed deer and fall wild turkey hunting permits will go on sale later in 2015.

Licenses and permits can be purchased online at wildohio.gov and at hundreds of participating agents throughout the state. A complete list of participating license sales agents can be found at wildohio.gov.

Licenses are also available for purchase on a mobile device, such as a smartphone. For licenses purchased on a mobile device, the customer must be able to display the emailed license on the mobile device or present a printed copy of the license upon request.

ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov.


Perch fishing is getting better in the western basin

Cathy Boreako

Our precious Lake Erie is turning green in the Western Basin, but from reports I have read the colder water temperatures this season are keeping it from turning to pea soup in major amounts like past seasons. But, this report is not about the green goo, it is about another green colored water creature; our beautiful Lake Erie perch. 

As you are well aware, we had a major cold front last week, with strong northwest winds that blew for 3 days straight. The walleye bite had slowed down, so I took an opportunity to go after some perch. From the reports I could gather, several areas are doing well for limits of nice sized perch. There’s a big area up on the northwest side of North Bass Island, that’s south of “Taco Bell” (red can on the border), that’s doing very well right now. Expect to go through a lot of smaller throw back sized perch, white perch, and sheephead to get a limit of 8-12 inch sized perch.
