Opening day

Recommended Posts

So I know opening day is May 14. My lake of choice is White Bear Lake.  My question is, can I start keeping bass and walleye etc on that date from that lake? I ask because on the opener last year I was fishing there and caught some bass and was showing my buddy some pics and he said I couldn't keep them. He mentioned something about inland lakes? I can't recall exactly what he said.

Welcome to the forum. 

Don't rely on what a buddy, your grandpa or a bunch of guys on a forum say.  Read the Reg's and stay out of trouble.  Good Luck on Opener. 👍

Bass are not legal to harvest until May 28.  You can target them for catch and release starting May 14.

As already mentioned, read and learn the rules. 
 

I personally prefer the physical paper regulations booklet over looking it up online. Keep one in your car, your tackle box, your night stand, anywhere else you’ll think you’ll need it.
