I’ve never fished this body of water, so my opinion is from outside looking in.
An example of what can happen is one of my favorite large bodies of water in Oneida county is Lake Tomahawk. It’s about the size of lake Geneva but connected to Minaqua chain. For the last 2 years it’s been Catch and Release on Walleyes. They needed to give the Walleyes a break because weak spawning and heavy fishing.
Before I would complain about the reduction to 3 fish, think about how crazy some would be if they decided to go Catch and Release only!
I don’t Walleye fish on Tomahawk because the lake needs a break. I do go for other species on that body of water though. Winnebago could eventually become Tomahawk if the science is ignored.
I too don’t understand why it’s on Ballot? DNR should just adjust as needed. Is Business on the Lake a factor? I don’t know, but there’s more to it than being discussed I would guess. Good luck to both sides of issue and hope the right thing is done.
