Limit on Upper Red

14 posts in this topic

I'm planning to come up to Upper Red at the end of January. What are the new rule changes this year in relation to limit of walleyes and eating them on the lake? Thank You.

RED LAKE, UPPER including Shotley Brook and Tamarack River (Beltrami County). Northern pike: all from 26-40" must be immediately released. Only one over 40" allowed in possession. Walleye: all from 17-26" must be immediately released. Possession limit two with only one over 26". Statewide bag limit may only include two Red Lake walleye. If safe harvest levels for walleye are reached, these areas will be closed to the taking of walleye. At that time, it will be unlawful to have any walleye in possession regardless of where taken while on or fishing in these waters. If a specified harvest limit has not been reached by June 30, the limit of walleye will become four.

The limit for the 2008 summer opener has yet to be decided.

So if I am reading this right, you can eat your limit but cannot keep more fish that day. Then the next day you can catch and keep your limit again. Is that correct?

When you are on a multi-day excursion (Friday - Sunday) and you don't leave the lake, how do they figure out which fish you caught (and ate) on day 1 and then which you caught on day 2? confused.gif

Okay. Your possession limit is your daily limit. When you clean your two walleyes you caught on friday, eat them, you are (in my mind) legally required to keep the carcasses for inspection and measuring purposes. Then, saturday you wake up, before you drop your line in the water get your butt to shore and throw them in a dumpster. Go out, and get your two again. REPEAT for sunday and take those two home. AT NO TIME MAY YOU HAVE MORE THAN TWO WALLEYES!!!!

I don't know who at the DNR wrote the latest version (Jan. 8th) of rules about consumption of fish having a size restriction, on the lakes but it's about as clear as the water on Red. I have had at least a dozen people come into the shop and insist that you can eat any size fish on the lake and then only take home fish out of the slot. The DNR website and the Outdoor News have this in print: Quote, New legislation includes an exception, allowing fish with a protected size limits to be cleaned for a meal on the ice, MNDNR Jan.8th, 2008. I just want to clarify that these consumpion rules are not only a Red Lake rule but a state rule, fish must not be froze, measurable, intact unless preparing a meal, then carcasses must be properly disposed of off the lake before fishing the next day. On Red Lake the limit is two walleyes in possession all walleyes 17" - 26" must be immediately released.

Yup, that's right- you can butcher up and eat that 27"er on the ice but that 17"er has got to go back

I think if the walleye limit was 4 and a 15inch minimum state wide we would not have dumb rules like take your remains to shore before u could catch more. Thats just me.Also 1 over 28

The bottom line is that the DNR is trying to increase harvest, whether that be a daily limit of four or eating your fish on the ice, I agree that the DNR has not done a good job with explaining the regs. If a person plays the game right you can eat 2 meals of walleye and bring back a limit after a weekend of fishing. Either way its a lot better than going on a three day trip and only bringing back 2 fish per person. A state wide reg certainly would be nice, but all lakes are different and therefore some may reguire special regs.

In a way you are right. With a 4 fish bag and no protected slot you wouldn't have to worry about hauling any remains to shore. Walleye fishing on Red would most likely be closed by now.

Personally I'd do not like minimum length limits. In every lake that has had those type of restrictions the overall size has gone down. Instead of seeing individual minimum limits being stretched out from 12-16" every one suddenly keeps everything that hits the minumum designated length. You'll catch more 14 3/4" eyes in a day than you can shake a stick at after it's been in effect for a few years. Just another reason why the DNR does not use minimum length restriction as much now as they did 10 years ago.

A minimum size limit isn't going to increase the population size.

Well dah--

With that particular reg, you are looking to increase numbers, given dynamics of a certain body of water.

you're right borch that dnr doesn't do as much minimum length restricting as 10 years ago.Many of those lake that had the rule it didn't help or realize sought after objectives

Flatly allowing 1 fish over 17" would seem like a good way to go as then a badly hooked fish could be kept but would also increase angler just keeping a healthy 20"er cuz they can--soo maybe just leave the rule as is

        The two pairs shown are the classic adidas originals yeezy boost 350 shoes sale and the adidas Superstar 80s. Both will come with a White upper along with nubuck material with a snakeskin texture overlay. The Superstar will use leather across the heel tab and Three Stripes down the side which is dipped in Black. The Stan Smith will have perforated Three Stripes branding along with Green on the heel and tongue. Look closer at this adidas nmd r1 uk womens they feature a White Primeknit across the uppers while Glitch Camouflage is used on the base. In addition you will notice that there is multiple shades of Grey on the Three Stripes branding along with Japanese writing. Other details include more Grey on the heel and EVA pod overlays while White covers the Boost midsole and outsole. adidas yeezy 350 v2 uk sale While we have seen sneakers from all the brands in the NBA 2K series along with customizing your own pair, this will be the first time the Yeezy Boost will be available in the game. As of now, it isn’t known which pair will be available, but more than likely it will be either the 350 or 750 Boost. The adidas stan smith primeknit sale has been one of adidas Originals biggest sellers through the years and in our opinion, only ranks second from the retro line. Over the past months, we have seen the model evolve while using different material mashups but now we have something completely new. Here we introduce to you the?adidas Stan Smith ’24K Gold’.

        adidas originals campus 80s uk and size will debut two pairs of the adidas Superstar 80s while using a premium theme. The duo will feature tumbled leather along with tonal nubuck across the Three Stripes and heel. In addition, the trefoil logo seen on the leather tongue is laser engraved. One pair features White and Light Grey while the second comes in Black and White. The two are finished off with the traditional shell toe and White through the midsole. adidas samba adv uk sale My friend ended his story of Pablo with an event that took place at his high school and I think it really defines talent. Apparently Pablo had maneuvered around the defense brilliantly and was coming straight on to the goalie, and instead of trying to shoot the ball around the goalie - which would have been an easy shot - he just launched a rocket straight at him. The ball went off of the goalie's leg and into the net. That is how Red Pablo with his red Adidas sambas is remembered most. adidas zx flux primeknit black white So far two different colors have been introduced for the weather change, which comes in ‘Collegiate Navy’ and ‘Running White’. Both pairs are constructed with a mesh upper which allows for additional air flow while the midfoot strap is elastic to help the lockdown without the use of laces. The final touch is the addition to suede across the heel. Looking closer at this adidas nmd xr1 primeknit uk they feature a Utility Grey and Shock Pink color combination. Across the uppers is the use of Grey Primeknit while camouflage detailing runs throughout. White is used on the Boost midsole while the EVA pod overlays are done in Shock Pink and Grey. Completing the look is Black on the outsole.At the time of writing, a release date for the adidas NMD R1 Primeknit Utility Grey Camo isn’t available however they are expected to launch during Summer 2017. Once released, retail price will be $170. Once we have more information, we will make sure to update you. Below you can check out additional images which will give you a better look. This adidas nmd primeknit black white comes dressed in a Legion Ink, Trace Blue and Gum Light Brown color combination.

Completing the look is Gum that is applied to one of the EVA pod overlays and across the outsole.

        adidas originals extaball up trainers   is getting ready to launch a brand new model in 2016, but before they do that they will unveil the shoes on December 9th, 2015 which is Wednesday. Known as the ‘NMD’, this new pair will combine elements of some of their classic models like the 1984 Micro Pacer, 1986 Boston Super and the 1985 Rising Star. adidas gazelle og sale uk We are currently in the midst of a Gazelle renaissance. While more technical models in theadidas?arsenal might be hogging the limelight at present – namely the?Ultra Boost?and?NMD?– the time-tested Gazelle is holding its own and doing what the classic Three Stripe low-top does best, delivering lush materials and clean colourways. Keeping to this MO, the?Gazelle ‘Ostrich Pack’ delivers two tonal make-ups made of premium leather and nubuck. So why is this called the ‘Ostrich’ pack I’m sure you’re wondering? If you take a sneaky look at the medial-side branding, you’ll notice that it is made of exotic ostrich leather, with the bumpy hide adding a subtle textural pop. Following on from the mens adidas forum hi og casual shoes Wars Rebel Squadron Suprerstars we saw recently come this AT-AT walker inspired Forum Lo. Kind of like a mini version of the?AT-AT Pilot El Dorado?we saw last year, these feature a polar Hoth camo on the uppers and a ‘Hoth Blizzard Force’ AT-AT on the heel that harks back to the?Bill McMullen?AD-AT Shelltoe of a few years back. Available from?Sole Movement, thanks to?Nice Kicks?for the news. adidas adi ease premiere skate shoes This release of the Three Stripes’ UltraBOOST 3.0 sees the sneaker dressed down in a neutral ‘Trace Khaki’ colourway. The?Primeknit?upper wears the tan colour, with the typical mottled pattern flecked throughout the knitted build. The lacing system and heel counter feature a tonal variation of the same colour, giving the UltraBOOST a clean finish. Other than an understated aesthetic, these kicks are equipped with the full-length?BOOST?technology sole for a cushioned ride. adidas eqt running support 93 sale It looks like 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the EQT over at adidas. The recent?‘Turbo Red’ set?gave us plenty to look forward to and now, for those who aren’t inclined towards the many black options presented so far, they’re slipping?in a ‘Cargo Green’?EQT Support ADV?to bulk out the surplus. The shoe still features a few spots of ‘Turbo Red’, which sit comfortably alongside the olive green upper, while the black supports and white midsole tie the whole shoe together with precision.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
