Hey what are the regs for opener. 4 under 20" or 4 under 22"? Is it the same as this last winter or did it change? Thanks

Pretty sure it starts @ 20" again this year and will move to 22" later. I haven't seen anything from DNR regarding changes, just what I've heard.

would like confirmation here...That you can be on the lake before midnight, but just not fishing until midnight? Is that correct?

For opener, you can be on the lake before 12am, but if you are caught fishing before 12am for walleyes you will be facing some serious trouble. Technically you could be fishing for crappies and perch, but I wouldn't push your luck.

And just a reminder for everyone, the driver of the boat still has to be under the legal limit for alcohol. You don't need that kind of trouble on the lake either. You can still get a DWI on the lake. Beware of the launches too, the driver of the boat and the truck both need to be able to pass a sobriety test if both engines are running. Just be careful.

Is it true that the night time speed limit at night is 20 MPH on all lakes?

TrophyEyes is correct. You can be on the lake before midnight, but do not fish. Don't "push it" saying your'e fishing Crappies or Perch and youre' using minnows.

On some lakes there is a speed restriction. But I don't believe there is one on Mille lacs.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
