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.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
