What's the walleye possession limit this year?

3 posts in this topic

I've tried to get a clear understanding of the rule changes for this year, but as always the DNR makes everything confusing and frustating to a normal guy who just wants to fish! We just bought an 8x20 sleeper this year and have it out on LOW. Now my question is...If I go out on Friday and fish until Sunday evening, how many walleye can I keep, per person, legally? If I have a meal, do I have to keep the entrails(skin and heads) until I leave the lake? What is the new rule, or should I say, what does it mean?????? confused.gif

AT any time you can only have 4 walleyes per person in possession. 4 under 19.5 inches or 3 under 19.5 inches and one over 28 inches. For each person, if you catch 4 on Friday and eat them, you can keep 4 more on Saturday. If you only eat 2, then you can only keep 2 more. You can't keep more than 4 walleys per day, so you couldn't keep 4 Saturday morning, eat them for lunch and then keep 4 more Saturday afternoon. You would have to wait until Sunday to keep 4 more. You need to keep the cleaned fish in tact, head, backbone and tail connected so the CO can measure it if they want.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
