Slots

3 posts in this topic

I am a big fan of the Slots and catch and realse but is there any lakes outside of milacs that has a bigger slot. It seems that every lake I have fished this summer has been 17 to 26 inches I have had to put back a lot of 17 1/2 inch fish. Just wondering

Check the regs book.

It will list all special slots for every lake. Its probably easier to look at what lakes have slots then for us to start listing all the lakes we know that don't have special slots.

You can read it online on the DNR website if you don't have the book handy.

Most lakes just follow the normal slot limits of 6 fish under 20 inches with one of those six being allowed to be bigger.

So most lakes those 17 1/2 inch fish would be just fine to keep.

Here is the link to the Fishing Regulations for 2007, take a look at the special regs of lakes in your area.

The special regulations start on page 23, normal limits are on page 15.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.
