The problem with the panfish population is there are bluegills between 8 and 9 but that is it and their numbers are getting low. 3 bad years of spawning has caused this. The regs online explain the 25 fish with no more than 10 of each species. Lowering the limits should stop the lows of the population. It will provide for more bluegills so more food for the game fish. If 10 big bluegills is not enough than I guess you have to go to a different lake as it is the regulation effective 1 April 2016. I believe this experiment is happening across 25 lakes in Wisconsin. Can't knock it until we see the results. My 2 cents.

I understand that I live 2.5 hours away. Have a cabin nearby. I'm bummed out with the new trout regs in waupaca. I only fish trout the first few weekends after opening. But I will reserve judgment until things run the course and we see the results in a few years.

Nice if you live close to the lake. I have to drive an hour to get there, (when I can) and would like to keep enough for a few meals

I've got a good appetite for fresh fish, but 10 filets from 7.5 or bigger gills is more than enough. Besides, it's 10 of 1 species. Example, 10 gills, 10 pumpkinseed and 5 perch. Nobody ever does it, but I see a lot of small gills kept when launching the boat and asking someone how the fishing was. I always ask the wife or kids, they tend to honest and like to show off their catch. Something has changed the panfish in this lake. I still suspect the spraying for milfoil.

It doesn't even pay to fish pan fish anymore if they drop the limit that low. If the DNR is so concerned swtop the people that take several limits a day I like to go out once in awhile catch a meal but damn 5 fish would be gone while I'm cooking them

25/10 panfish limit. No more than 10 of one species. I'm very happy with this and excited to see the results in a few years. Keep limits of small northerns along with your 10 gills everyone.

Heard that there might be a 5 bluegill limit on the lake this year. Looked online and couldn't find anything and don't have the new regs yet. Anyone know?? Thanks

Wife and I went out yesterday and the Mighty White punched us in the nose again! Got a 15" bass and snake northern on tip ups, and only one gill for our afternoon of fishing. Saw plenty on camera, just couldn't get a solid commitment out of any of them! We were even joined by one of the most popular Gill's in the Valley, "Mr. T" Gill, and we still left feeling like Cam Newton in the Superbowl post game press conference!!

Woke up today with a chip on our shoulder over the previous days outcome, so we headed back out to the same place at the same time offering the same jigs and waxies. Looks like those gills were saving all their love for Valentine's Day!!! Now I know the snow and weather system moving in may have played a role in our success, but I could swear one of those gills winked at me!

Quite a few vehicles driving all over the light. A lot of northern today, mostly small ones.
