Journal sentinel reports 3 fish limit on inland lakes now.   They really don't want us to eat fish.

I think a 3 fish limit in the GB bay/tribs is fine. I have zero problem telling someone on the Fox that they are violating if I see them. Be an advocate for the resource and call people out if they are doing it.

I wonder how many will be violating the 3 fish limit this year? The DNR doesn't have enough wardens to patrol the GB tributaries this year. An article in WON claims poaching is running rampant this year on the tributaries.  3 times what has been observed in past years.

I stand by my statement! The 3 walleye limit on The Big Chip has helped!!
Ask anyone in our 2 boats.
Sure,  sometimes sucks putting a few back, but in the last few years, it has made a significant change in the amount of walleyes we've caught. 
Back up the first week in June! Over 30 years!

Fish filet, I'm sure that was quite the sight seeing all those walleyes spawning. However, Fishing the system over 30 years,I have seen it from scratch to what it is now. You can thank all of us for the 1 walleye a day until opening day to get where it is. 5 fish per day is not sustainable considering increased fishing pressure, guides, and now sonar where you can just drive around until you locate a school. I'm good with 3 in the bay also.

I fish green bay once a year and winnebago maybe 3 times a year.  With that little bit, I'm not really packing the freezer.  Lol

Now, my hope is that the new regs are enforced, vigorously.

FF, but this one they (the DNR) got right. Really bothers some that they can’t pack the freezer, sad. Which is exactly why this regulation change was justified.  I love the change.

Was in Marrinette the last 3 days.  The amount of eyeballs seen at night with the headlamp was unreal.  That fisheree isn't hurting one bit.  We could keep 3 now instead of the one and it wouldn't put a dent in the population.  All fish seen in the shallows were over 20 inches.   Each area needs to be managed differently.  5 fish outta green bay during the regular season would be just fine for that body of water.

Big Mac good luck with that. Once there is an  abundance of walleyes the spearing quota will go up.

I'm NOT going to get into the deep political debate about the DNR, spearing, etc.
 All I can say is, our fishing group on The Big Chip, we have already seen an increase of walleyes we are catching. It really feels good releasing the under-sized eyes! We will enjoy catching them in a few years!

I have always wondered what it would be like if we had catch and release only for a few years in Wisconsin?

I haven't kept a fish for myself in a couple years I gave away a few bass maybe three in the last couple years to people who were leaving for the day.  I almost think we have too many bass around where I live anyways
