  1. I is stupid that u cant fish for whale on sundays who will find a whale in ohio

  2. The whale thing seems a little unreasonable. Everyone knows it takes a couple days to reel in and clean a whale on the shore of Lake Erie. What, am I expected to take time off work? I can imagine the conversation with my Boss…

    -Me: “Hey man, do you think I could take Friday off so I can go whale fishing?” -My Boss: “Go fishing for whales on your own time.” -Me: “I can’t, its illegal on Sunday” -My Boss: “Tough Shit!”

    I suppose I could leave early on Saturday and drive up to lake Ontario and get me whale. Man fishing for whales in the Midwest is getting to be a pain.

  3. Thanks for clearing that up Mike! I wish I had seen your response sooner. Can you tell me; What is the statute of limitations on hunting and killing an “Ohio whale” and what would be the best way to dispose of a whale carcass? Hypothetically of course.

    Also, if I’m in another state or country and I accidentally cast my line across the middle (into Ohio) and I end up catching a whale can I keep it or do I need to release it? I know this seems unlikely, but there are some narrow area’s of the Ohio river near Newport and St. Mary’s where one could accidentally catch an Ohio whale from the shore of West Virginia. I just want to make sure I’m following the letter of the law…

  4. What if you get drunk on Saturday night then wake up next to a whale on Sunday morning? What then?

  5. Well Sparki if she’s laying on your arm, gnaw it off and slip away before she wakes up. Also, leave a thank you note with Lance Armstrong’s phone #.

  6. No one can be arrested on Sunday or the 4th of July *for a misdemeanor.* The law makes exceptions for treason, felonies, and breach of the peace.
