I've heard that too and have never had any problem not having it when checked by a CO. Never heard of anybody getting a ticket for it either. Not saying it isn't on their books though. :confused:

I heard you just need your first initial and the last 3 letters of your last name. That's what they are looking for.:yikes:

What I stated in my post is all I know. If you don't get a definative answer, call or e-mail the MNR in Chatham and post what you find out.

Been going over there for a number of years and I heard the same thing, but have never been able to find it in the regs. anywhere. Here is the closest thing I could find in the regs to it....
"If you use a live holding box or impounding device, it must be clearly marked with your name and address (and it must be legible without having to lift the box), unless it forms part of or is attached to a boat. Any fish in holding boxes are part of your limit. Always monitor fish in your possession; allowing fish to waste is an offence. Catch and retain possession limits apply to live holding boxes."
So it doesnt say bucket but says holding device, I put my name on the bucket and be done with it.
