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.

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
