Limits?

Recommended Posts

STORE500

Hello everyone, I know the limit has changed to 3 fish this year, but could someone clarify the "daily limit" rule for me. My dad and I are heading up there next weekend and will be staying on the ice for 2 nights (Friday and Saturday), can we have just 3 fish each in our posession when we leave Sunday or can we have 3 fish for each day we are there? And what is the rule about cooking fish in the fish house? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

You can have no more than 3 Red Lake walleye in your possession.

Quote:
A statewide possession limit of six allows any combination of walleye and sauger, so all six fish in a statewide limit could be walleye. So in a combined trip to Red and LOW, once you are off the waters, you could possess six walleye as long as only 3 walleye are from Upper Red and only 3 walleye are from LOW. Additional sauger (2 in this case) would be allowed to reach the 8 fish combined LOW exception.

This is taken from the sticky at the top of the page, read through that and you will have everything you need.

As far as eating fish; If you keep 6 walleyes on Friday, eat 4 of them for dinner, you may keep 4 more walleyes on Saturday, but I believe the guts need to be disposed of on shore??

Carcasses count! The guts need to go to shore for sure...also, be vigilant about those 16.75" fish.....we always shy away from the ones that are close....last trip we had plenty to sort through...don't risk a big ticket for .25" worth of fish! Have fun....

So this is ok then?

Staying in a sleeper on URL, keep 3 walleyes one day and eat them for supper. Take carcasses back to shore before fishing anymore. The next day, catch 3 more and take them home.

deadstick that is correct, yaeh dont keep anything close to 17" the COs seem to have better way of stretching that 16 3/4" fish to 17 or over. Not worth it.

Walleyes that come in at 16 3/4 and up can relax, strech and do all kinds of stuff after they are caught, not to mention when you fillet a fish the carcass can stretch so be careful and remember if it even touches the line of seventeen it is "seventeen"

Jonny, it's funny how the fish sizes can change. The carcasses can stretch when filleted, but my brother and I caught a couple where minimum size was 16 inches while summer fishing that were 16&1/2 and when they came out of the livewell, they were about an eighth of an inch short. The warden luckily was understanding. We've become more careful of what we consider to be keepers.

      Any updates as to the slush conditions on Vermilion, particularly off the staked trails?  
    • smurfy
      i keep hearing that this slush wont freeze up. i just cant fathom that with the low temps forecasted it wont?????????   anyone else with thoughts????
    • arctic_scrap1
      Yeah I tried the wrench yesterday. I Can't get it to move with a load on it. With no load on the jack it does go up and down with the electric motor though. I ended up ordering a whole new jack since they're only $200. This one I'll take apart and try to fix it and keep it as a spare.

      Was out checking ice.....on west side....even though there is good ice closer to shore, when neighbor was trying to plow a road out farther, a lot of water was coming out of a crack. Please do not go out with a larger truck!!!!!

      I'm also thinking about going up this weekend. We were thinking about Barnacles or Red Door. It will be our first time out of either resorts. Any recommendation or opinions about the resorts and their roads? Thanks in advance!

      Thank you.. and thanks for the advise on the Duluth forum! I will look that up and subscribe.

      Thanks for your response! Sounds like fishing is pretty much the same on this end as Ontonagon. Aside from the rock reefs and possibility of snags on the bottom. I don't run lead core but have a pair of downriggers and some dipsies. I fish a lot on the surface with my Otter Boats with Rapalas and some spoons. I always run at least one dodger or flasher in the mix with a Howie's fly or a spin n glo behind it. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it! Hopefully I can have a good weekend fishing!

      Glad your back Bryan! So far my season hasn't been one for the books but it haven’t been horrible. I’ve been waiting for your videos good to see your back man!

      Thanks for the input!  I definitely don't want to snag one of my rigger weights! I have otter boats I run off a mast on both side of the boat. I run surface spoons and stick baits off the lines. Works well out of Ontonagon and sounds like it will work here also. I have a few dipsies also but do not have lead core on any of my set ups. I run a flasher or dodger on one of my lines also. Usually on one of my dipsies. I pretty much sounds like fishing off Ontonagon except for the snags on the bottom of the north shore. Thanks for your wisdom! I appreciate it!

      I drove by the lake this weekend and saw a large amount of vehicles and houses out there.  We are finding the crappies either out deep in the holes suspended or they are hugging weeds.  I know huge difference but don't be afraid to go shallow or deep.  I wasn't too far from Crystal fishing 6 feet of water Saturday fishing cabbage and getting a mixed bag of panfish, pike, and bass coming through.
