SNAGGING in Ontario

#   I just wanted to make it absolutely clear that snagging is absolutely illegal in Ontario another WFN Ambassodor has made a blog that suggests otherwise this method of poaching is illegal it doesn't matter if you have a bait on the hook if you are caught intentionally snagging you will be charged and lose your fishing gear or worse this is a C&P from the 2010 MNR Ontario fishing regulations section: it is illegal to .     Catch a fish by impaling or snagging it with a hook through any part of the body other than the mouth - any fish hooked in this way must be released immediately.  I would Like to ask that all WFN Ambassadors do a little research before making false statements the regular occasional fisherman/women come to this site  to learn about fishing and should not have to worry about being misguided and get into serious trouble over something they read and thought was true on WFN .
