Protected Slot

4 posts in this topic

I see that the Red Lake Nation has adjusted the lower end of their protected slot size up to 20 inches. Understandable since it's getting more difficult to take 'em at less than 17". Is the DNR also looking at doing something like this?

I think it would be a good idea. For those who are out fishing for there limit, they will get them alot sooner, and will have a less of a chance of needing to catch 100 fish to keep 4, then not injuring alot more!

The limit reverts back to 2 on Dec. 1st I believe.

Good Luck!

I knew that! But the same thing applies, if I was there to catch my limit, and I could catch it with only catch and releasing 5 fish, to catch my 2. Instead of having to catch 50 walleyes to catch my 2, I think more fish would live.

But I could see the down sides of it also, it would bring in alot more people, but I am sure the resorts up there dont want that, right grin.gif . And I know it wont effect the people who just keep fishing.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
