Merc1,

Not true !! 

I live on the TFF near Springstead Landing and can say that rumor has been making the rounds up here, but there has been NO official discussion of a zero walleye limit for the TFF.

The local WDNR fish biologist is in very early stages of discussion about potential bag/size limit regulation changes, but that is a very long process that can take 2 years or more. 

For more info on the potential regulation change  process, see here:

Thank you to everyone who fished and supported the Turtle Flambeau Flowage Association’s annual Claus Kraetke Memorial Ice Fishing Jamboree at Donner’s Bay Resort last Saturday! It was a relatively slow day of fishing, but participants enjoyed the spring-like weather, raffles, food and fun. It was nice to see familiar faces, and new anglers at the event. Mark your calendar, the event will be held again February 23, 2019.

You won't find better people than Marv and Connie at Donners Bay Resort.  I have known them for at least 6 yrs

Spent the weekend on the TFF targeting panfish and walleye. Stayed at Donner's Bay with Marvin and Connie and again had an oustanding time. First class individuals!

Found a couple walters toward evening Friday, then hit a couple more Saturday morning and night. Nothing to write home about. Crappies were tough to target as it seemed we couldn't pin them down in deeper water. Ended up finding 15-foot flats coming off shallows humps with structure for perch. Fish were actually about 2-3 feet off the bottom. Limited on nice 10-13 inchers both Saturday and Sunday. Truck travel is good on the flowage right now, not sure after this latest bout of snow. If you get off track and spin, you're done. Bring a shovel and you're fine.

Good Luck everyone.
