It doesn't matter what you think or do until the spearing will stop, which is never! Since 1984 when spearing started, fisheries have plummeted and will never recover. No way they can recover as a speared fish, Walleye or Muskie, is a dead fish! While fishing most people catch and keep, its impossible to release a fish that has been speared. Any proposal is ridiculous as long as spearing is concerned. Makes me realize why southern lakes have been stocked so heavy, their is no spearing.

I would personally like to see a 14-18 inch size limit on th TFF, being that the TFF has such slow growth rates for walleye. Anything over that should be released.

There is a proposal by the DNR on walleye bag limits that could become law for the 2015 season.

This is a major change to the constant yearly changing of the bag limits once the tribes actual harvest is tabulated against the safe harvest projections for each lake.

I disagree with the provision that would affect the TFF and other 'no size limit' waters.

my opinion... I would rather see a 14-15" size limit with 1 over 20-21" ... I think most folks are not interested in keeping 12-13" walleyes

------

here's a link to an article about the proposed changes.

http://m.jsonline.com/sports/outdoors/walleye-bag-limit-proposed-by-dnr-b99469082z1-297605291.html

worth it to read the entire article.

You can send an email with your comments to:

laurie.ross@wisconsin.gov

She collects comments for the Natural Resources Board. If you send your comments to her, she will include them in the public comment packet presented to the board. The board will be hearing the DNR proposal and voting on it April 8 in Madison.

For your comments to be considered, I think your input has to be received by Laurie by Friday, April 3. If you can, send it to her in the next couple days to be sure.

------

I would ask to keep the comments respectful, so they receive serious consideration

"TeamG's posts Block This User 3/9/15 10:13 AM CST With the last few years having late ice. Has the walleye population benefitted from this from less fishing and spearing pressure while they are spawning? Or has there not been much impact from the longer winters of the past few years. It is warming up quickly this week and the small rivers and streams are starting to show life already. I hope the ice is out for opening weekend this year up north, it would boost the economy and let more people get out on the water this year."

Not sure if the late ice had an impact on the walley population but I'd think it would. I do know that last Memorial Day Weekend I had some of the best walley fishing of my life. Limited out every day and had great fish fry's. Also caught and released a 26" spawned out female.

TFFA thanks for posting the fish and names I had the name wrong for the person who caught the biggest walleye, Johnny Miller, I think he is about 11 years old he was pretty happy with his fish.

Just checked the weather wind 0.0 temp - 27.6 good day to work inside!

It is great to see Claus is remembered by this tournament. He loved to catch crappies thru the ice. I used to take the river trip when he owned the Midway Bar. The guides were Ed Robinson Ed Beechler and Jim Lynch. What a great group of guys. I hope to make it up for the tournament someday.

Jeff, I have to respectfully disagree with you, I don’t think the powder would be an issue.

I can see from your post you’ve got it all wrong, you may be a good fisherman but as a target shooter well…

Here’ my secrete to a perfect score please keep it to yourself:

Shoot the group THEN draw the circle

See you out on the water, AND OF COURSE THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT POSTS. Big Smile
