    You have your own pond/lake right? Is that what your thinking? Go with perch, they're awesome with eggs and toast. I know there's a difference between Farming and stocking (least there use to be). There was a Trout farm outside of Kitchener where people would go and pay to catch there own. Allot of parents who weren't up on fishing would take there kids there. They even supplied the tackle. With Black lake, Pike lake, Long lake and Ottie lake all within 5 minutes and 100 more within 20 it would be a hard sell here.
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    They farm small mouth near Kinmount, I think large mouth are legal. You do need a licence to to raise and sell or transport live fish, I don't know if you need one for personal consumption. I had a pond with rainbows for years that we stocked, raised and ate, never had a licence and no one ever said anything.

    K, I just ran into my first problem on this site: I can see "You have your own pond/lake right? Is that what your thinking? Go with perch, they're awesome with eggs and toast. I know there's a difference..." under what's new but that post does not appear in this thread yet.

    I think you are onto something there Stephen J, Walleye is a type of perch and apparently I would be allowed to farm Walleye which is actually a Pickerel in my books but I'll call it a perch if that makes the authorities all warm and friendly.

    I think I just figured out my retirement plan for the next decade. lol Break out the hip waders honey we're goin fish farmin.

    ... trout are out of the question :/ I don't want to mess with any species that is not native to the lake. I've heard Trout are garbage fish anyway.

    Woo hoo! post #1241 just showed up the admin guys are on it.


    I don't need to sell or transport them, I just thought it would be a good idea to provide a safe habitat for the native fish species and increase their odds against extinction. They would all be set free once they reached maturity.

    then I could go catch em and eat em later

    add:
    Good call on that Kinmount operation woodsman, they offer seminars and assistance to make it all happen, I shall follow up on that one.

    I don't think they'll let you release them into the lake (without a bunch of red tape) MNR owns it. I'm sure they won't let you farm in the lake.

    There are grants available for fish farming and tax breaks for farmers.

    Rainbows are good eating. I never had the patience to fish lake trout.

    lol ya that sounds about right, I'd have to release them by accident If it works the way I had in mind they would never actually leave the lake. I was picturing an area of the lake where a small natural river flows into it, constructing a pond area just before where it outflows into the lake, making that "pond" suitable for fish breeding habitat and screen or net protecting the area to keep out the heron, racoon and snapping turtle predators. I'm aware that we don't really own anything in this part of the world, we just own the right to pay taxes on it.

    If it gets too complicated I'll just say screw it and raise Swans instead. I know I can sell those guys pretty easy and they look real cool swimming around on the lake.

    Yea but the swans shit like it's a career and make mess of things. Went to a cabin on a private lake once and the owner would go up stream and fish for Trout until he had a few in a bucket and then accidentally drop them in the lake. Kept a log of what went in and what came out just for fun. No money changing hands and no real environmental impact. A good read up wouldn't hurt though. As I've been told before "ignorance is not an excuse nor a defense" I replied "Thats what she said" now who wouldn't laugh at that. Rhetorical question I have his badge number. I'm all for conservation but at times they do regulate the hell out of things. Post #1,000,000,024
