Officials Limit Walleyes On Mille Lacs Lake

Jerry Carlson

ST. PAUL (AP) – Anglers will be allowed to keep fewer walleyes when they fish Mille Lacs Lake this year.

Mille Lacs anglers will be able to keep walleyes only between 18 and 20 inches, or longer than 28. All others must be released. The limit is two, with only one longer than 28 inches.  Last season all walleye from 17 to 28 inches had to be released.

But the state is loosening regulations for northern pike and smallmouth bass on Mille Lacs.

The lake’s protected slot for northerns will be narrowed to a 33 to 40 inches, with only one longer than 40. The limit remains three. The smalllmouth limit has been raised from one to six. The new protected slot is 17 to 20 inches, with only one longer than 20 inches.
