    If you are under 17, you may fish without a license, but you are required to observe all fishing rules and regulations.

    "you are required to observe all fishing rules and regulations."

    One of the fishing rules includes creel limits, so yes, he may possess his own limit.

    Me and my 5 yo were checked by a co and had a two person limit of fish. This was on the St clair river and he asked how I was fishing. I responded with trolling bottom bouncers. He asked if she was holding the rod. No I said they go in rod holders. My daughter gets many fishing days with me so I had no concerns of her ability to show him but he never asked. FYI he did say sometimes he hears jigging and finds that hard to believe.

    I believe if you are fishing inncanadian waters a minor without a license catch counts toward a license holders catch.
