$11.00 Permit Required on top of your License to fish Ohio Waters of Lake Erie in the Springby Capt Juls on 12/20/18
I just wanted to bring this to the attention of all the folks who come from other states to fish Lake Erie's Western Basin in the spring for Trophy Walleye.
This is a one time purchase each spring, over and above the non-resident license required to fish here.
Per the ODNR site:
Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, a Lake Erie permit ($11) will be required for all nonresidents to fish Ohio waters of Lake Erie from Jan. 1-April 30 each year. Money generated by this permit will be used for specified purposes related to the protection and improvements of Lake Erie, such as combating invasive species, securing public access and providing for fish management projects in Lake Erie.
