If you are under the age that requires a license and want to fish in a BFL or everstart tournament would I need to purchase a license first or can i still fish without one, if im under the age of 18, which i believe is the age to require a license. thanks for the help

You have to be 18-65 to need a license, But you have to have your birth certificate. if under 18 or over 65.

False...If you are under 18, you don't need one. However, if you want to keep fish (in a livewell to weigh in) You can either have you and a license holder share one limit, or you can purchase your own license and then keep fish . In other words, you need one to keep your own limit.

h2o - got to watch the fine details...

I live outside of Canada. Do I need a licence to fish in Ontario?
Anyone who lives outside of Canada is considered a non-resident for the purposes of fishing licence regulations. Most non-residents need a fishing licence to fish in Ontario. Specifically:

-Non-residents 18 years of age and over must purchase a fishing licence.

-Non-residents under 18 years of age may fish without a licence if accompanied by a adult who has a recreational fishing licence. Any fish caught are part of the catch and possession limit of the adult who holds the licence. As another option, non-residents under 18 years may purchase a licence and any fish caught apply to the catch and possession limits of that licence.

Non-residents 65 years of age or older are not exempt from licencing.

The Canucks aren't as generous to non-residents (same as pretty much every where else).
