Mille Lacs walleye limit remains the same
Anglers who fish Lake Mille Lacs during the 2010 fishing season will again be able to keep four walleye up to 18 inches in length, according to a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources news release. The bag limit of four may include one trophy longer than than 28 inches.
The regulation, which takes effect May 15 and is identical to the current regulation, requires anglers to release all walleyes from 18 to 28 inches. It was set by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources following input from Mille Lacs area resort, angling and related interests.
The regulation aims to ensure that the state angler harvest falls within the state’s 2010 allocation of 411,500 pounds of walleye. Eight Chippewa Indian bands from Minnesota and Wisconsin may take 132,500 pounds of walleye.
