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.

      yea I keep thinking of getting a different motor but runs good. its a 40 Johnson. I am happy with the boat itself and don't plan on a different one either.

      There are good panfish, both above and below Pillager dam. in Lake Placid, As the water warms, look for the milfoil beds on the north side of the river to establish itself.  If the edges as well as the deeper water adjacent to the weeds.  I like to fan cast a split shot rig vs. a bobber set up. Below the dam, in summer panfish can be caught directly below the dam as well as near Cty 1 Bridge and along most of the inside turns of the river east of there. There are some nice sized panfish in the system, please let the bigger ones back.

      Anyone ever fish this lake before? Looks like it could be a good early season lake. Where exactly is the access? Is it a marked road? Pay box or do I have to go to the house and bother the guy? Appears the river might be too high to fish next weekend, so it’d be nice to find a little solitude on a nearby lake over the holiday weekend.

      I was the one with the 26-1/2" fish yesterday that weighed 5.15 #s. Was a skinny spawned out walleye!  Catch her again in 2/3 weeks and she will be 6/7 lbs for sure! 
    • JerkinLips
      I'm sure that the 5.15 pound walleye was a skinny 26" fish.  The regulations book lists a 20" at 2.7 pounds and a 26" at 6.2 pounds.

      Believe it or not it's a 1993 1660 ProV with a 2 stroke Pro 60 Yamaha. Still runs like a champ. I'm starting to get to the age that it doesn't pay to get a new one. It's always stored in the garage unless we're on a trip.

      Must have been a tough day of fishing with a couple hundred good fishermen catching only an handful of fish over 5#.   I'm puzzled by the fish weighing 5.15# and and 5.81#.  Seems too heavy for a 20" fish and too light for a 26" fish.  The chart I use suggests a 20" walleye weighs 3.12# and a 26" walleye weighs 7.18#.  Of course there is huge variation around this prediction chart.  Wonder if these were these long skinny fish or short chunky fish?   Thanks for posting the results bb and congrats on 10th place.
