Again, just a short update. We haven't gained any ice in the last week - in fact, we've lost a little. We still see A FEW people walking in Cove, Wahkon and Isle Bay, but at this point it's "walking" ice. Be sure to check the thickness YOURSELF before you go. Since there have been so few people, there hasn't been much of a read on the bite. All northerns to this point. Midweek, there were a few folks launching their boats in the Garrison area.
Beginning TODAY (December 1 2017), as we understand it, walleye fishing is allowed. Again. Anglers are allowed to keep 1 walleye 20-22 inches, or 1 over 28 inches. Live bait is allowed. The northern pike limit remains at 5 fish, with only 1 of those fish being over 30 inches. Anglers/spearers must harvest 2 pike UNDER 30 inches before they are allowed to harvest 1 over 30 inches. Live bait (all sizes) is allowed. Muskie season is now closed. Any questions, call the DNR in Saint Paul... they haven't bothered to update the "Mille Lacs regulations" page on their website as of yet.
Have a great weekend!
