I recently started a project for an english class and was just wondering/ need aome opions on this topic:

"What do you all think about the new regulation on cleaning fish in your fish house on special regulation lake?"

thanks in advance for your opion.... both sides would be great, because it is an open ended research paper.

It's about time! I am glad to see that they have finally made this "legal". In my opinion if a guy is out to poach the regulations make no difference to them so you may as well let the folks that abide by the law enjoy a legal meal fish on the ice if they would like.

Yep... I agree... If someone is going to poach... They're going to poach anyway.

Last year I knew a guy on ML who wanted to eat fish in his sleeper... All of legal size etc... So he made a section of his floor that came up to put the carcass under just in case he got inspected...

It's dumb to have to go to those lengths just to eat a fresh meal of Walleye.

I prefer not to freeze my Walleye solid on the ice sheet, if I'm out for 3-4 days... I enjoy fresh, and if I catch one at 4:30... I'd love to be eating him at 5:00!

I'm glad they changed the regulation to allow you to eat fish on the ice....especially in the days with all the fancy houses we have now and the time people spend in them. It is nice to see a regulation that "allows us to do something" rather than "prohibits us from doing something."

I like the idea. I also like fish, and it would be nice to have a meal in the shack once in awile.

If the fisherman dispose of the remains properly, as I'm sure most sportsman would do, it would be a better experience for everyone.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
