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.
