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."

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
