48" Limit Comments from DNR

1 post in this topic

After watching and hearing about several 40+ DL area muskies going home with the Labor Day weekend crowd, I emailed the DNR office on Sallie to ask about interest in a 48" limit. This is the response for anyone interested in supporting such effort.

"Thank you for voicing your interest in a 48" minimum muskie limit. The 48" minimum limit was not put on Sallie, Detroit, and Melissa because there didn't seem to be a lot of support for/interest in that regulation at the time that many of the other muskie lakes in the state were pushing for the minimum size limit. However, within the past few years we have heard more and more people and sportsmens' groups expressing interest in the 48" minimum. It is definitely something that we have been and will continue to look into for the future. We will keep record of your comment for support of a 48" minimum size limit."

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
