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.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.
