I know it's lawful to have shotguns in your boat during duck season, but is it lawful to have something such as a Mossberg Just in Case shotgun in your boat during fishing season while fishing remote locations? The gun would be kept unloaded and sealed in the Mossberg container. What are the laws regarding firearms and boats?

It is lawful to have a firearm in your boat. It's treated more like a home than a car FYI.

Mossberg in boat loaded on the ocean is lawful.
Mossberg in boat loaded on a lake, I dont know if its lawful. Might want to contact DFG or DOJ for that.

It depends where your boat is. Do not attempt this at Pyramid Lake just north of Reno. It is inside of an Indian Reservation and you will loose your gun and possibly your freedom too! Yes, it's also illegal to drive through that reservation with a firearm in your car. You'll need to check the laws that govern the particular body of water that you intend on being on.

Don't go into Mexican waters/docks!
