No you don't. The CO for Winona County in MN specifically said that I was good to dispose of the guts in "a manner that wouldn't offend other anglers or the property owner." The CO is Tom Hemker.



That's interesting...MN regulations state (page 37) that it is illegal to dispose of fish guts "into public waters or onto stream shores"


So when I asked he said that from his perspective the places where disposal of that type of material is a problem is where others take notice primarily due to smell. He asked that I dispose of the remains in a place that wouldn’t be noticeable by others or offend others. Common sense here, not hard to make sure that others don’t notice a 12in brown trout gut line, it’s not that big just don’t leave it right on the stream and don’t stack a bunch of them up so that if they last long enough to rot that they stink. Digging a small hole off the stream bank isn’t hard.


Yet the regs specifically state you can't do that.



Different COs will handle different regulations, well, differently... Sounds like this particular CO is pretty relaxed.


Ha, thats a good one. Tom Hemker is the biggest hard ass there is. That being said, based off of WFF's conversation with him he also has a good share of common sense.

I’m glad he enforced the important laws, that’s good to hear. Truth be told, I generally gut on the spot and either leave it covered on the bank or, if it’s a public or wooded property, I’ll toss them into the woods for a Mink or Racoon to profit off of.
Now, if I’m fishing Milwaukee or Racine, I won’t add to the mess unless it’s at the point where it makes zero difference, and even then, I’ll dig a hole for it.

I've never really checked what the law was regarding disposal of fish guts. Always just used common sense and tossed them out of sight and smell of other anglers. Out of sight out of my mind and into a Mink, Coon or Possum's mouth. Everybody wins.

Common sense tends to go along way in this world.

Between Ron, Shebs and I, we whacked 8 Browns out of Pierce County. Of course the young guy had to drag them the last 1/3 of the Creek...😂

I kept a few browns as well as a walleye. They will all be delicious. Biodiversity is the spice of life, if you ask me.

I don't know about their asses, but the filets are great fried in butter with some lemon.
