Slot limits


Recommended Posts

Slot limits are good. Of course I don't always like them but they do help to promote better age classes in lakes. I think they should start having slot limits for more species.

Slots can be bad and good. Walleyes for example. They can be bad if a lake is heavily fished and has had good natural reproduction. B/c that can kill a whole year class of, lets say, 14"-16" fish. Not good, b/c then you have a "gap" in walleye size.
Now it can be good if, lets say, 1 year the natural reproduction was horrible and slot can help them come back.
Take Mille Lacs for example that 14" to 16" year class just got wiped out b/c of slots last year. Now why cant they instead put a limit of 3 fish per person??? For example just have 1 fish over 20" and 2 fish under 20"???
Depends on what the situation is, slots can be good or bad.
Thats just my point of view.

Slots for specific bodies of water can be found in the 2003 regulations under "Experimental and Special Regulations" on pages 25-42.

Tucked into the DNR's 2003 omnibus bill is a provision that anglers would be allowed to keep no more than one walleye larger than 20 inches or one northern larger than 24 inches daily. Both are daily limits, meaning anglers fishing for six days could legally posess six walleyes over 20 inches and three northerns over 24 inches. This is only a proposal at this point and will need legislative approval before going into effect.

Spike: Considering that the daily and possession limit are the same wouldn't that limit you to only one fish over 20"? It really wouldn't matter if you fished 1 day or a whole week if possession and daily are one in the same. Bill

    • I drive by that candy barn all the time its crazy how busy it always is. Ive lived not 5 miles from it for 49 years. Been there once.
    • I'm game to try anything but yeah, I'm not into a lot of fruit or sweety meats.  Plus we made our one trip a year down to the Big yellow candy store already this year. 😋
    • 🙄yea you lost me when you mentioned honey!!!!!! and honestly i'm not a fan of all those "extra"ingredients in my meats.....especially that high temp cheese......yucky!!!!   plantenbergs has all kinds of that type of stuff.......i pass, only get plain sausage and brats.   iffin i was still on the union payroll i would take ya up on that as i travelled through belle plaine on my way back from siouxfalls now and then!!!!! now that i'm on a srick budget......thats a long way to go fer a weinie!!!!!🤣
    • Take a trip down to Belle Plaine. I'll show you some good hot dogs.   Just made Minnesota style summer sausage (blueberries wild rice and honey) for thew first time today.     
    • i've lived in Richmond and now cold spring all my life. my brother ordered a half of beef from this place called Homegrown meats , had never heard of it. know why now, when i picked it up it was established in 2020.  its just south of browns lake at the intersection of 22 and cty rd 43.  nice little place.   he called both Plantenbergs and breagelmans in Richmond........they are 6 months out. Breagelmans actually referred my brother to this place.  he said it was cheaper also!!!!!   i'll be taking some venny trimmings to Mcdonalds in 2 weeks for summer sausage and sticks!!!!!   plantenbergs will get the rest for bologna and hot dogs!!!!! you cant eat other bologna or weiners once you've had theirs!  mcdonalds SS and sticks are also topof the line as far as i'm concerned!
