Attention Anglers! Inner Bay Fishing Sanctuary

A Fish Sanctuary has been established by Regulation on part of inner Long Point Bay. It is now necessary to refrain from all fishing between May 15th to Saturday, June 23 in the area labelled NO FISHING AREA below.

The Sanctuary is to protect the bass fishery during the spawning period.

The number of anglers fishing in Inner Long Point Bay during late May and June is increasing resulting in increased stress on the bass.

Even an accidentally hooked (and returned) bass guarding its nest can mean the loss of its reproduction effort for the yearand that means fewer bass in the years to come.

Your cooperation will help the bass and protect your sport.
