(St. Paul, MN) — Anglers may keep one walleye between 18 and 20 inches or one longer than 28 inches when ice fishing begins on Mille Lacs Lake this winter. That’s according to the Minnesota DNR. The winter walleye regulation goes into effect on Tuesday, December 1, and extends through Sunday, Feb. 28, 2016. The DNR made the decision after considering three regulation options it presented for committee discussion on Wednesday, Oct. 21, in Garrison. The DNR also will reduce the limit of northern pike on Mille Lacs from 10 to five, with one fish longer than 30 inches allowed. The walleye season ended early on Mille Lacs this summer when the catch quota was met sooner than expected.
