No Change In Mille Lacs Walleye Rules For 2011

DNRST. PAUL  (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says walleye regulations on Lake Mille Lacs this year will remain unchanged from 2010.

But the agency is relaxing regulations for northern pike caught on Mille Lacs.

When Minnesota’s fishing season opens May 14. Mille Lacs anglers may keep up to four walleyes less than 18 inches. That may include one trophy fish more than 28 inches. Anglers must release all walleyes from 18 to 28 inches.

That slot would loosen on July 15 if the angler harvest is low
enough.

For northern pike, the regulation will be a protected slot from 27 to 40 inches, with one trophy fish more than 40 inches allowed in the three-fish possession limit.

The DNR says Mille Lacs pike regularly grow longer than 40 inches.
