Heading to Vermilion again soon from Utah and wondering about bringing some fish home this year. Never transported from Minnesota. Can anyone help with particulars? i.e. whole, gutted, fillets OK, skin on, etc. and usually two day limit of each species? Thanks much, Bob

The regs are available on line. One limit per license, fillets ok, patch of skin required, no more than two pieces per fish.

You should ask for a fishing regulation book when you purchase you lic. if they do not give you one!

You daily limit is also your possession limit.

The transportion of different species varies, so read the fishing regulations.

The only exception to this possession law is perch which is 20 daily and 30 in possession.

Vermilion also has a slot limit on northern pike-- all fish between 24" and 36" must be released and only one pike over 36" in possession.

There is also the state wide walleye size limit on walleye... Only 1 walleye over 24" may be taken per day.

Vermilion may also go to a tighter walleye slot next year...which may be: everything between 17" and 26" must be released and only one trophy walleye over 26" may be in your possession. The daily and possession limit may also be reduced to 4 walleyes.

Cliff,

Do you know why the DNR is proposing a 4 fish limit? Seems to be excellent numbers of walleyes in Vermillion. I can see the need for a slot, but it seems to me that the smaller fish need to be culled.

You are right, Vermilion does have an excellent walleye population! laugh.gif

The reduced limit proposal is to keep the walleye population at the present level.

I think it is a great idea! laugh.gif

The statistics for fishing pressure on Vermilion for the last 3 years shows that there has been a drastic increase in the amount of walleye fishermen on the lake. shocked.gif
