The limit for this winter will continue to be 2-walleye. Next summer if we are not close to quota of walleye like this year they have the option to raise the limit to 4-fish on July 1st. They had a good presentation with lots of discussion and they will continue to be cautious until they see how things go for a few years.

Did they mention how close the lake is to the quota this year? Does the DNR have any prediction how much pressure the lake will recieve this winter?

Are you sure its pounds, or fish? I work with a young guy whos family belongs to the tribe. He claims "his father and uncle have 2 gill nets out most of the summer. So far they have caught over 100 walleyes just this month."

It is my understanding that the Red Lake band members are not supposed to use any gill nets. Only hook and line with a slot limit.

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
