OFFICIALS SAY THEY ARE PLEASED THE RESULTS OF FALL POPULATION SURVEY SHOW MILLE LACS ANGLERS WILL BE ABLE TO KEEP SOME WALLEYE DURING THE WINTER WALLEYE SEASON. THERE WILL BE NO BAIT RESTRICTIONS AND ANGLERS CAN KEEP A LIMIT OF ONE WALLEYE 20 TO 22 INCHES OR ONE LONGER THAN 28 INCHES. THE D.N.R. AND MEMBERS OF THE MILLE LACS FISHERIES ADVISORY COMMITTEE DID DISCUSS SETTING THE LARGE FISH LIMIT AT 26 INCHES, BUT FEEDBACK SUGGESTED THAT KEEPING THOSE FISH IN THE LAKE WAS PREFERRED BECAUSE THE POSSIBILITY OF CATCHING WALLEYE 26 TO 28 INCHES MAKES MILLE LACS AN ATTRACTIVE DESTINATION. THERE ALSO WAS CONCERN THAT A 26-INCH LIMIT COULD RESULT IN A HIGHER HARVEST LEVEL THAT WOULD COUNT AGAINST THE 2018
