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.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
