Anglers throughout the state can do their part to protect Ohio’s high quality fishing by reporting fishing violations they observe to the Turn In a Poacher hotline at 800-POACHER or online at ohiotip.com, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife.

Since its inception in 1982, more than 3,000 convictions have been made using information from the hotline.

In “Tan Lines,” something is killing the perch in Lake Erie. Is it bioterrorism or a new fish kill virus? When the United States president and the Canadian Prime Minister visit the Lake Erie islands for a conference and walleye fishing, the President disappears. It’s two days before the president stands for re-nomination at the party’s national convention in Cleveland.
When the head of the Presidential Protection Detail accuses Washington Post investigative reporter Emerson Moore of attempting to assassinate the U.S. president, Moore escapes and a massive hunt is initiated. The hunt is soon expanded to include a missing Secret Service Agent and a mysterious, unidentified third party.
Amidst a sniper’s assassination attempt, a covert terrorist on Grosse Ile, a series of unsolved murders, a rogue Put-in-Bay police officer, an illicit love affair, arson, Pirates’ Week festivities, a terrorist bomb threat in Put-in-Bay and boat chases; Moore tries to stay one step ahead of his would-be captors as he works to clear his name and find the President. His escape route takes him through Lakeside Marine, Lakeside, Joseph Wise Fine Clocks and Marblehead.
