Bremer Outdoors: Transporting Fish

Posted: Updated:

BRENT: "Hello, I'm Brent Mattson president of Bremer Bank and a member of the Bremer Outdoor Team along with my co-host Greg Gullickson from North Dakota Game & Fish. Just got off the water at Lake Sakakawea. Semi-successful day, had a great time. And now it's at the point where we need to clean our fish and do the proper transportation of those fish. And we have Greg here to help us out with that today."

GREG: "Yea, and that's one of the things Brent. There's a lot of people that don't know how to properly transport their fish. If you've been at the lake for one day, you've been there for the weekend, maybe you're at your cabin you're brining fish back home that you want to clean up or that you want to cook when you get home. There's a lot of different things that you need to take in, that you need to keep in mind. For example, each person can catch five fish. And that means each person can catch their own five fish. So no party fishing out there. The other thing is when you have those five fish, that's your daily limit. Possession limit is ten. Now if you're transporting those fish back to home, say from your cabin or camper or wherever, those fish need to be identifiable by the game warden. Now you don't have to leave any skin on, but those fish need to be individually packaged if you're going to transport them when they're frozen. If you're cutting them up and taking them home and want to put them in one bag and if they're unfrozen, that's fine. So keep that in mind when you're transporting your fish. The other thing you want to do is make sure to look at that North Dakota Game & Fish proclamation that has all the rules and regulations in there. Possession and transportation is one of our major problems during the summer. So keep that in mind."

BRENT: "Thank you Greg for that great information. If you want to learn more about the Bremer Outdoor Team and how we're taking action with area, uh, Minot area kids, just give us a call at the bank today. Remember, Bremer is taking action outdoors."
