Mille Lacs Walleye Limits Unchanged

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. The bag limit of four may include one trophy more than 28 inches.

The regulation, which begins May 15 and is identical to the current regulation, requires anglers to release all walleye 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.

The DNR is seeking legislative approval that would allow the agency to change the fishing regulation on Mille Lacs mid-season, ensuring the walleye regulation is no more restrictive than necessary.
