"Major issues that could affect hunters, anglers and other outdoor enthusiasts were raised at the annual Department of Natural Resources "roundtable" meetings with stakeholders last weekend."

You know It's a shame that there are still people that hoard fish when they know their's a quantity problem. Netting on Milacs Lake and other lakes should be prohibited no matter who owns the water (I thought water couldn't be owned by anyone anyway). It always seems to come down to greed. Be it for money or whatever. Then their's the poor guy that gets busted for not having a license when he can't afford one in the first place. The Wardens never seem to care when someone is trying to feed their family by any means possible. Sorry. Articles like that always get me started. I'm done venting.

Open the season a week earlier, and statistically the DNR will have to close more areas to fishing more often. Moreover, in some years the spawning and postspawning populations that will require protection will not be in rivers, inlets or other relatively easily defined areas, but on or near midlake shoals. Difficult to post against fishing? In many instances, impossible.

Opening the fishing season a week earlier also would be risky for northern Minnesota resort owners and outfitters (who are likely to oppose the idea). Opening weekend of the fishing season is tenuous enough up there in some places. Some years, it's simply too cold to enjoy. Other years, ice is still on lakes or portions of lakes.

Personally, I think if the convenience of an earlier opener does not put fish populations at potential risk, then the Legislature should move up the opener to the first Saturday in May.

yup I think a slot limit of 17 to 24 inches would be great throw them back and cutting down to four walleyes a day I like that. But with all the regs they are prposing the problem lies in the fishermen and fisherwomen themselves. As I believe most are honest but their is a number of fishing people who are very very greedy and they keep everything no matter the law also a lot of them try to go way over the limit. Then their is the people from other countries who come here and fish a lot of them don't even have a licence and they take all they can and then they tell DNR they don't understand english so now they get a way with out following the laws.I know this for a fact as I have been there watching this as they were being questioned . I'am not only talking a bout mex but also asians as well who come here. or anybody that goes over their limit they all have excuses.
