But keeping is a different story. You cannot continue fishing once you've filled the statewide daily bag....Panfish "in aggregate" means 25 perch crappies bluegills or sunfish. Combined or one species only,doesn't matter.
I believe you can fill a bag limit on a lake with reduced bag limit,then go to another lake to fill out the statewide bag but you cannot exceed the statewide daily bag limit...with possible exceptions of IA/MN border waters.
But again,ALWAYS check with the WDNR on these questions and don't take my word - or that of ANY anonymous website poster - for what amounts to a question of law....Legal advice.
I remember back when inland gamefish closed on March 1st every year. That particular year the last day of Feb was a Sunday. I assumed gamefish was closed. My truck was loaded with my panfish gear,my walleye ice stuff was already in the basement.
I sat down to Lake-Link for a cup of coffee and a read before I headed out for bluegills. A discussion broke out here on whether gamefish ended THAT day or the previous day at midnight. The majority of posters said gamefish was closed - anyone fishing gamefish that day was a violator and a poacher.
So I called the WDNR and asked. The nice lady said that "all dates inclusive" means it closed March 1st at midnight. I could go walleye fishing....
I repacked my truck. I ignored the well-meaning "legal" advice from the LL peanut gallery. I had the best walleye icefishing day of the season.
Lets try another "reg" question......
If I catch 25 Perch on Lake A, Can I still go to Lake B and catch 15 Crappie?
