Limit of 4 walleyes. Protected slot is currently 20" to 28". Fish in this range must be released. Can keep one over 28". Protected slot changes to 22" to 28" sometime in July I think. Not sure the exact date.

Remember, when July comes and the slot changes to 22"-28",

you can only have 1 between 20-22". New statewide law, 1 over 20".

Mille Lacs special regulations supercedes all state laws.

Starting July 15, you can keep 4 walleye under 22 inches

....or

3 walleyes under 22 inches and one over 28 inches.

"Walleye: All 20 inches or larger and 28 inches or smaller must be immediately returned to the water, except one walleye over 28 inches is allowed in possession. Limit four. Starting July 15, all 22 inches or larger and 28 inches or smaller must be returned to the water except one walleye over 28 inches is allowed in possession. Limit four. The slot will revert to four walleye up to 20 inches with one over 28 inches in the four fish limit on Dec. 1."

You are 100% correct cool.gif. Mille Lacs is kind of in a "league of their own" when it comes to regulations. Seperate from the other lakes. Getting hard to keep up.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
