What's the walleye possession limit this year?

Recommended Posts

I've tried to get a clear understanding of the rule changes for this year, but as always the DNR makes everything confusing and frustating to a normal guy who just wants to fish! We just bought an 8x20 sleeper this year and have it out on LOW. Now my question is...If I go out on Friday and fish until Sunday evening, how many walleye can I keep, per person, legally? If I have a meal, do I have to keep the entrails(skin and heads) until I leave the lake? What is the new rule, or should I say, what does it mean?????? confused.gif

AT any time you can only have 4 walleyes per person in possession. 4 under 19.5 inches or 3 under 19.5 inches and one over 28 inches. For each person, if you catch 4 on Friday and eat them, you can keep 4 more on Saturday. If you only eat 2, then you can only keep 2 more. You can't keep more than 4 walleys per day, so you couldn't keep 4 Saturday morning, eat them for lunch and then keep 4 more Saturday afternoon. You would have to wait until Sunday to keep 4 more. You need to keep the cleaned fish in tact, head, backbone and tail connected so the CO can measure it if they want.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
