2 1/2 YR. Legality ?

5 posts in this topic

I need help on this one. Been getting lots of different opinions. If my daughter can real the fish up thru the hole and she is only 2 1/2 yeras old can we keep a limit for her as well? I still need to bait the hook and take the fish off, but she does the rest.

Is there anything in the regs that talk about this topic?

Thanks for any input.

Go ahead! As long as you have a lic. (handling her rod and reel and baiting it for here), you are more than in your legal right to bring home a limit for two.

Go for it, If a CO says different he needs to show us the age limit in the regs.

I actually had a CO stop me and count fish. I had a limit for myself and one for my son, and we were good to go. No problem, as long as the parent has a license.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
