Night fishing?

Discussion in 'Canoes & Kayaks' started by Rooster, Jun 30, 2005.

  1. I use a headlamp to night fish from the kayak. This is usually restricted to the AEP ponds, and I never really thought about the legality. Anyone know what the regulations are for night fishing from a non-motorized craft? Is it legal to just use a headlamp, or are you required to have a fixed light? If you are required to have a fixed light, what constitutes “fixed”? That is, can I just duct tape a flashlight to the kayak? Thanks!
  2. It works fine on nights I troll. As long as its vissable and dont over speed! :T

    Vessels Under Oars
    (OAC 1501.47-2-25)
    A vessel under oars may exhibit lights for sailing vessels, but if not, shall have an electric torch or lighted lantern showing a white light in sufficient time to prevent collision.

    Got that from the Ohio Dnr website
