Lake Mille Lacs walleye slot set for 2008 (March 4, 2008)
Anglers who fish Lake Mille Lacs during the 2008 fishing season will 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 10 and requires anglers to release all walleye from 18-to 28-inches, 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 2008 allocation of 307,500 pounds of walleye. Eight Chippewa Indian bands from Minnesota and Wisconsin may take 122,500 pounds of walleye.
