Non slot fish on Sloted Lakes??

Recommended Posts

ISU Fisherman

what about slot fish between slot and non-slot lakes..

Hypo question - If ottertail had a min 11inch slot on Crappies, but I had boated up "a" river to Rush and caught and kept some crappies 9.5inchers. Boating (via a river) back accross Ottertail to the cabin,- Would I be legal??

Thanks??

Speaking for myself, I would go with the most restrictive reg in place if you are traveling via the river.

You should contact the DNR I remember reading somewhere you cant take fish under slot to a slot lake,they should be left someother place.I'm not positive tho DNR best bet!

This is very similar to Lake of the Woods. Right now, the limit for walleye is 2 on the Rainy River and 4-mile bay with no fish over 19.5 inches, but on the main lake the limit is 6 (no more than 4 walleye 19.5 - 28 PS). Up there, I recall that as long as you do not stop and attempt to fish on 4-mile or the river and are just transporting the fish back to your cabin you should be fine. However, LOW is a border water and I'm just a biologist and not a CO.

As Sparsebag mentioned I would contact the CO and ask for his interpretation before I would attempt anything. I would also check the regs on the river because many times the reg will extend into the tributaries.

WAR EAGLE!!!

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.
