Panfish rule

Recommended Posts

daveyred

This may seem like a stupid question but because I'm not org. from the state I need some clearification that I am not getting from the rule book or finding on the DNR site. I am a catch and release fisherman most of the time but my son asked when looking at the rules the following question.

The rules say that you can keep 10 Crappie. Under that it says you can keep 20 sunfish. Under the sunfish it says (either or combined)under that (bluegill, pumpkinseed....).

Question:does this mean that

1. you can keep 10 crappie and 20 sunfish for a total of 30 fish?

2. if you keep 10 crappie you can only keep 10 sunfish for a total of 20 fish?

In Michigan we could each keep 25 crappie and 25 sunfish and 50 perch but we were in the Army for 12 yrs so KS, Germany, GA and VA all blend together.

Thanks for the help, be safe and good luck.

You can keep 10 crappies and 20 sunfish of which they can be a combination of pumpkin seed, blugill etc.. Meaning you can have a total of 30 fish.

you should be able to keep 10 crappies and 20 gills.for sunfish its either 20 of gill or 20 of sunnys.or you can combine the sunfish and gill to a total of 20.

Thats what I thought but what made this unclear to me is the fact that for most species the regulation goes from dark blue to light blue than back. For these to species it is the same light blue. Makes it look like the either or is between the crappie and the sunfish.

You can keep 10 crappies and 20 total in combination of bluegills, sunnies, pumpkinseeds.

I remember, not too long ago, we were able to keep 15 crappies. Like 3 years ago.

Practice C&R on larger panfish,they are the future genetics of the lake,and should be treated as a resource like any other gamefish.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
