6 posts in this topic

Can someone please explain that new rule for walleyes? As i read it ,does it mean i can keep a walleye that measures 20 inches and then if I catch one that is over 20 i can keep that walleye also to include in the daily limit.

Note from admin, please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you

You are allowed to have 5 that are 20 or less with 1 over 20 unless there are special regulations for the body of water you are fishing.

It is actually a possession limit of 6 fish with one being 20 inches or over. You cannot have 5 fish that are 20 inches. They need to be under 20 inches. Same thing for slot limits. For example, Leech is 4 fish limit with one being over 26'' allowed and everything 18-26'' must be returned. You can't keep 4 fish that are 18 inches, they must be under.

Correct, can only keep the fish "UP TO" and not including the slot number. I wouldn't reccommend keeping one that is just a hair off teh 20" mark either. Sometimes in the livewell they relax and will gain a little bit of length and could be enough to push them over.

    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha
