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.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣

      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.

      Thank you

      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.

      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.
