Little Known Regulation

4 posts in this topic

CO Steen brought to my attention a reulation, #6262.3250.

Within the regulation it states a completely filleted sauger will be counted as a walleye. An exception to this is if a licensed fish packer leaves the full skin, dorsal fin and tail attached to the fillet.

An angler wishing to clean his own fish having his 4 eyes and two saugers, he must leave the fish whole, however the saugers may be gut and gilled.

Campers in the Kab, Nam, basin cannot clean their catch, unless they are preparing a meal of their fish, or having a shore lunch. The remaining catch of fish, if cleaned can only be gut and gilled until the reach their shoreline destination. The regulation was apparently adopted in 01/13/04.

For further information on this reg, you could go to the DNR website and find this statute 6262.3250 Minnesota Rules, table of contents for chapter 6262

Guts,

I'm coming up next Sat. What if we catch a few in the morning, both sauger and walleye, planning on having a fish supper. We clean them when we come in for breakfast, leaving them in the frig until supper. Can we do that? What should the fillets still have attached to be legal?

Thanks.

fisinfritz, to keep it simple stay within a limit of 4 fish per person, and you can fillet them for your meal. A filleted sauger is a walleye, countwise. If you are going to have over 4 fillets per person as some are sauger, they must be kept whole, alive or gut and gilled until they are to be put in the skillet. guts

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
