Multiple Day Fish Cleaning Question

Recommended Posts

Rhino__14

What are the cleaning/possession rules for multiple day stays on URL. I know you can only clean fish immediately before cooking them but what do you do with the carcasses if you are staying for multiple days to show they were caught on a certain day? We are heading up next Fri-Sun. Are we allowed to catch, clean, and eat our limits on Fri and Sat and then take a limit home on Sun?? Do the carcasses for the other days need to be labeled??

Yes you can eat your 2 walleye a day and then on Sunday catch your 2 and bring them home. Not sure on what you do with the remains though.

i know you dont have to keep the carcasses in your house all weekend.how they gonna know if you ate fish or not.just get rid of the carcasses the next mornin.then you should be able to bring your limit home.but i could be wrong.i would look at the dnr site for more info.

The carcasses must be kept in your house unfrozen and available for measurement by the DNR through the end of the day they were caught.

Then you MUST dispose of the remains on shore BEFORE you possess anymore walleye. They are still considered your 2 fish possession even if they are carcasses.

If the DNR stops by your house on Sunday and you have 3 days worth of carcasses and 2 walleyes to bring home, you will be cited for 4 walleye over your possession limit.

There have been multiple flyers and info tyoed about this... the latest update and clarification took place the 1st week of January... I'll see if I can scare it up.

Good Luck!

Well said Ken. Remember WE are responsible for following the rules. Each day you get up, make a run to shore and ditch the remains from the meal you made the day/night before (in a garbage can). Then your possession limit starts over. With the fines as they are, you won't want to be looking at the Game Warden with that many walleyes in a bag! ;\)

And I'm sure one of our several wardens using spotting scopes as they do will also say "BINGO" when they remind you where your new garbage can is located, the possesion limit is 2 along with the littering laws.

I'm guessing it is cheaper to "dispose of properly"

Fearfish...

You gotta be kidding me! You're gonna come on a public forum and advocate that someone breaks the law? Cute! I always hoped that all members of this site abide by the laws and promote ethics in all outdoor pursuits! \:\(

Can you imagine the lake at ice out if only a thousand guys pulled that stunt over a weekend throughout the winter? I'm sure the cabin owners will really be pleased when all the remenants from 'your' dinner wash up on their beach... sick.gif

Dispose of your trash properly! I take my 10 year old out and pick up trash most every spring... and even at 10 he's appalled at what we see and knows better! And that includes a couple of hundred walleye carcasses left on the ice under houses... \:\(

Good Luck!

I agree, I fish in the Twin Cites and I am sick of picking up after other people, almost every time out I come back with an extra bag FULL. So please don't litter it only makes the rest of us look bad. If you bring it out bring it back if you don't want to carry it back don't carry it out!!!!!!!!!!

Oh I remember it. It was seriously cold out, I was hiding in the truck and I look across the ice and there is a very young man out skimming holes. Artic explores said to heck with it but not that guy. You sould post the pic bigger so we can see the excitement on his face. You just can't make that stuff up.

You should have seen last springs beach clean up. The Upper Red Lake Area Assocation puts on a spring clean-up effort. We filled trucks full. I had a small strech of the eastern shore and the assistance of the Kelliher Public School seniors and we filled my snomobile trailer three times. If I remember correctly we filled four trucks FULL with trash off the beach.

Locals do not take kindly to littering and most won't hesitate to bring it to attention.

The moon shot is awesome! Some of the best moon rises and sunsets I have witnessed were courtesy of Red Lake! Sometimes worth twice the cost of admission!!!

Good Luck!

Your garbage can idea was kinda funny 4:20.

I was disappointed your crucifixion wasn't more severe or clever though.

relax guys wow! get all worked up I figured nobody could just read that and not reply with something outrageous! had to test the waters to see the responses. If you honestly think everyone on FM does the "right thing" in the world your madly mistken. Im sure nobody is perfect no matter how much you preach ethics! Rules constantly get broken due to lack of knowledge or just choosing to do it. I dont condone either but it does happen!

I would imagine that you do not throw your garbage out in your own back yard so what makes you think somebody else wants it in their backyard

This is the latest regs. as posted by the DNR... Enjoy a meal, follow the laws and we can continue to have this regulation allowing us to eat fish with slot limits while ice fishing.

Good Luck!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.
