They lifted the spearing bans on several lakes as posted above. Not all lakes but it's a start. 

Any special length regulations on those lakes still apply.

I live across the street from Tonka and had planned to pretty much give up spearing, at least not put my own house out next year.  Now I am building a new spearhouse and am excited for the upcoming season.  Those big Tonka carp should be fun, and finding clear water not stacked with other spearhouses near home might not suck.

An fyi for those going to spear Tonka, there is a rule of having no ice blocks on the ice.  So either push your block under, or be prepared to load it in the back of your truck. link to LMCD winter rules pdf, page 3

What lakes still have a spearing ban?  Pleasant?

It might end up taking some of the pressure off the lake from those who live in the metro area. There is a lot of good fish able water on tonka. I just hope we don't see any issues with people going swimming. That lake claims a lot of people every year. Most in the type of areas that spear fisherman might be targeting.

Staying away from bridges will be the first way to cut down on the fatalities they seem to claim someone every year

    •    So would the 100,000,000,000 the has ever existed.     But I have a sneaking suspicion your genome originated from the same frozen bacterial booger stuck on that meteorite from another galaxy that BD's did.
    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.
