I`m happy to live in an area where whatever You catch whenever You catch it is legal,excluding paddlefish and there`s a season for them coming on real soon. 8)

Nice fish, my son did that a few years ago fishing for bull heads the night before the opener and landed a #10 plus eye, kept it long enough to take a picture and let it go.Hey Marty51 please explain what you just said about no season.Never heard of anything like that.

Not to step on Martys toes here, but one of the great things about living in Montana is that the lakes stay open all year round and the majority of fish in those lakes don't have a season.  So its "Fish On!" all year round!!!

The only exceptions I can think of are Bass(have a small closure during spawning season), and the Paddlefish Marty spoke of, oh and Bull trout in some lakes.... 

Its Frickin' Awesome!


Good Fishing!

well or like here in maine the season opens up on april 1st every year for open water fishing and from that day on you can catch and keep whatever accoriding to size and bag limits but there is no opener day for salmon then bass than perch ect. all is open on the same day and then the regulations change such as bass where from april to june the limit is 1 at 10 inches and must be caught on artifical lures than june through septmebe is 3 fish general law and so on the only exception is on some lakes that open up later than others such as our moosehead lake did not open to fishing till may 1st

Nope did`nt step on my toes at all.at least I never felt it. :rotflol: Neptune pretty much said it right there.I do know that if I would go to some of the waters in the western part of the state I would be checking on the regulations for the waters that I would be fishing.Eastern 1/2 of the state is wide open,except for the elusive Paddlefish. ;D

here in Idaho it's illegal to keep bull trout, and there are size restrictions on bass and such, but the only seasonal restrictions are specific to certain bodies of water, and usually it's just "catch and release from this date to this date"
