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.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
