Fish tale: Angling season begins in P.E.I.

Tyler MacInnis from Oyster Bed shows off his catch on opening day.   He and pal Riley Hume were on the hunt for a good spot since 5 a.m. on April 15. They stopped at a few places before they tried the pond outside Crapaud.
“I caught one on the first cast,” said MacInnis. “It’s a good day if the rain would go away. At least the fish are biting. Can’t wish for anything else.”

Tyler MacInnis from Oyster Bed and pal Riley Hume were on the hunt for a good fishing spot since 5 a.m. on April 15. They stopped at a few places before they tried the pond outside Crapaud.

“I caught one on the first cast,” said MacInnis. “It’s a good day if the rain would go away. At least the fish are biting. Can’t wish for anything else.”

More than 10,000 angling licenses are sold annually in Prince Edward Island. The number of people fishing is higher than this because children under 16 do not require a license.

Angling licenses can be purchased at local vendors across the province, at Access PEI sites and online at princeedwardisland.ca/en/service/buy-fishing-licence-online.
