Ok, I guess I didn't see the walleye part.

John not looking for an argument, but boatfever seamed to be asking about walleye regulations. I don't think any of the changes on the panfish limits on the 90 some lakes made it in to the regulations.

The regulations are still wrong unless there is a sticker on your page. The walleye regulations are there but they didn't print the panfish regulation that I stated below in the regulation. The DNR is handing stickers to License Agents in the Phillips area to up date the regs but that does no good for people that buy their licenses in other parts of the state.

It is in the regulations under Price County, Elk river. It reads as follows, Elk river upstream from Jobes dam to Musser Flowage dam, including Phillips chain of lakes: Duroy, Elk, Long, Wilson lakes, and connecting waters; Only three walleye of any length may be kept, but only one fish can be over 14". It's not as easy as it used to be, but if you look long enough it's usually in there. Smile

The DNR had a misprint in the book and missed the chain in the county section. They gave us stickers to put in our regulations at the shop and are posting the regulations at the boat ramps. Walleye is 3 with only one that may be over 14 and the panfish limit is 25 and only 10 of a species which is new for this season.

I got my fishing license renewed and picked up the new regulations. I checked to see if anything had changed and there was no entry for any of the Phillips chain in Price county? Does that mean the regulations for walleye are the same as the rest of the state now? Minimum length on walleye 15" and bag limit of 5? Or was this just an error in the regulations? Or maybe I missed it? Big Smile

I drove through town about a week ago and there were at least a dozen shack on Duroy in town. As far as Long Lake or Musser go I can't say. I would assume those folks walking out from the Golf Course have been getting on, also.

Starting to get pretty green out there in areas.... Not too bad though, I've seen it a lot worse.

Phillips Area Fishing Report.

Despite having to fish between some nasty weather fishing was pretty good over the weekend, I had the pleasure to take a couple of families out last weekend with younger children and had a blast. We were targeting Walleye and Crappie. Because the children were younger we went tried to simplify the fishing by using slip bobbers and live bait. We were targeting the Crappie shallow and the Walleye in a little deeper water and using small fatheads for bait. At the end of both days the families took home a couple meals of fish each.

Ross's Sport Shop customers are reporting Walleye action to be good with mostly smaller fish being caught. Look for the Walleye to be around the first major break in the lake or about 10 to 15 feet of water. Reports of Crappie being scattered between shallow and deep water are coming in with most anglers targeting the shallow water bite with plastics or minnows under bobbers. Bluegill are also being targeted in the shallow wood and new weed growth.

Pictured is a young client with a nice crappie that she caught and also another young client Zach with his families catch for the afternoon
