Numbers don't lie. Dnr netting survey results support what most are saying about the walleye population and the distribution of their age/size structures.

Then why we having this topic lake is good, enough said if you look everybody can catch plenty of keepers.

I've fished the lake for 20+ years. I should be able to find certain size fish.

It took much longer and a lot more work than I can ever remember to find keepers last year. One of the worst years I can remember since the slot was 14-16"

Looking for perch this past weekend, found two eyes that fit the new slot. Bet they don't come back and see me this summer. cry

You think this whole thing is a joke? Mocking people that are concerned?

Carmike, are you (they) also hiding them in their pockets when the dnr do surveys at the landings etc. DNR does base part of their research on what's being caught? But overall majority of people are not getting many keeper fish. If they were we wouldn't be having this conversation....

There are amazingly good fishermen on the lake who can consistently catch keeper fish. I'm not one of them. Obviously there aren't nearly as many of those fish as in years past, but to say that no one is catching them is really to do two things: 1) to say that the people who are catching them don't spend their time posting in online fishing forums and 2) to admit that we're not good enough fishermen to find them consistently.

From Jan 1 to season close i was on mille lacs every weekend except 2, and all of those were 3 or 4 day trips. I ate 1 walleye on the ice. Rest were released. Doing my part

So where does the truth ly?

Dennis Anderson's article in the Startribune today ends the article with the truth you ask for. In his last three words "it's the nets".

I'm just hopeing that the resorts that make a living off the tourists don't suffer from this, as i fish up there at least everyother weekend all summer plus a few MTT tourneys! It will be interesting to see how this all plays out! Was hopeing for maybe a 3 fish limit with one over 26, we get plenty over 26 but not that many over 28, You want a trophy go to LOW! My kids just like catching the fish anyways, but I want them to be able to fish mille lacs long after I'm gone!!

I wouldnt think the resorts will suffer because of this. Aside from a few people on this thread every other person i spoke with is excited about this and plan on visiting the pond more often. I mean great news with the bass and northern slot right? Yeah only 2 walleye limit but the legal size increased so for those saying everything you caught last year was bigger than 17" i assume you did not go home with 4 fish anyway. Now maybe you can at least get 2 fish? For all you people that think bass doesnt taste great keep on believing. More fish for me then smile

      Going to lake vermillion for the first time. June 13. Staying near Arrow Head Point, Isle of Pines. Only have a small boat with 15 HP so looking for some tips for where to go for big pike that is reasonably close given my boat. I do not mind a drive, but I know how conditions can get on big water.  I also plan to go to Trout Lake (reason for bringing the small boat) If anyone has tips on Trout Lake for Pike.  Thanks and #tightlines!

      Heading up to chain for a couple weeks.  Need some general info on the panfish bite.  They still shallow?  Got a couple grandkids coming up and any info sent on the panfish action will be appreciated.  Thanks   Ray guy

      Maybe see if you slide the winch back on the tongue an inch or two. The roller needs to contact the boat to keep it from bouncing. Should check to make sure the rear bunk rollers line up with the rear transom for stability.

      Every rig we've owned the roller is above the eye & snug to the boat when it's loaded.

      I looked at my rig yesterday . It is a matched boat/trailer package from Lund . My roller is above the eye but snug onto the bow , probably an inch maybe more, higher than yours.

      If I have where you are right then lake Nokomis is near you. There’s lots of good walleye and crappie in there. If not I might suggest Medicine lake. There’s a handful of shore areas to fish and some easy to access kayakable areas. Lots of northerns and panfish in that lake. Look for weed edges and either cast spoons, spinnerbaits, etc for pike or bobber and work for panfish. Also some bonus walleye in there from time to time.

      Wild trout are more cautious, and basically smarter. I rarely do well with flashy or bright lures on streams with wild trout. But when I fish designated trout lakes up north, it usually doesn’t matter what color I use. But I’ll give the flashy stuff a slight edge.

      Went wading on the upper croix today. Started at my secret spot, but high water made it tough to get around. Fish were fairly active though. Caught 5 decent bass and a little pike. Zipped up to highway 70 bridge and gave that a try. Caught 2 really nice walleyes here. But like the other spot, high water made wading not possible. Might come back here with my boat though 🤔

      I just moved to Minnesota, I live in Maplewood and looking for somewhere near by to fish for catfish from the shore. Any suggestions?
