The VOICE of Anglers and Hunters since 1928

Baitfish Review

The MNRF is proposing a new bait management strategy and the outcomes will affect the way anglers use and harvest bait in Ontario. The strategy applies to baitfish and leeches (live or dead) but does not include crayfish, frogs, and worms.  For nearly a decade, the OFAH has been actively engaged in bait management in Ontario. We participated on the MNRF’s Bait Review Advisory Group, attended stakeholder sessions, submitted official responses, and continue to advocate on behalf of Ontario anglers.
