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.

    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign.
