Way to go DNR, years of effort into setting regulations that will do nothing but hurt the population in the North central. Two over 26" is the ruling with a 22"-26" protected slot? Say goodbye to the big females as they will be targeted heavily. A guy can now legally bring home 2 over 40" if they so choose. Are the odds of you pulling 2 over 40" slim? Perhaps, but those mid to upper 30" fish are dynamite spawning fish and they will take a beating.

Ride with the 30" - 40" protected slot with one over 40" statewide. Bump the limit up to 5-6 fish in the North central and keep it a 2 fish in the rest of the state if you must. I can't help but see some problems down the pipeline with this ruling. If the goal is to get rid of the small pike allowing increased harvest of the big pike is backwards thinking. Big pike eat little pike. The DNR just might want to try to keep them in the system.


I'm sorry but you're completely wrong. The new regs will not hurt pike in the north central zone. You could keep two pike over 26" with one over 30" under the old regs. The new regs continue this with the exception of no 1 over 30". Fact of the matter is people aren't catching more than one 30" pike in a trip. I'm sure you'll come up with some story where you did, but the overall numbers don't lie. People aren't catching many 30" fish. The purpose of the new regs is not to produce more trophy sized fish. The majority of anglers do not want that. The purpose is to allow more harvest of fish less than 22" and hopefully produce more 24"-28" fish which is what people want.

Now if they do something similar to weed out the bass under 14"


You can take 6 bass any size. What more do you want?

Why anybody would take the county’s side in this is ridiculous. The tribe wants to have its tribal officers investigate state and federal crimes on the reservation. It would would ease the pressure off the sheriff. The canceling of the original agreement is purely a political power play by the county that helps nobody.

"10 minutes AFTER legal shooting time"...

Not sure of the details here but it seems as if this buck should have been allowed to walk. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad you culled this buck from the herd. Congrats on the harvest! But you say "AFTER" legal shooting time. I'm sure you realized this after the fact... Correct?


I want to know why you’re glad this buck was “culled” from the herd. It’s a yearling, who knows what it could of been in 2 years.

Give it up, there is no argument that the 13 million acres in land given up is worth less than any casinos or hunting and fishing rights.

So logging, mining, agriculture, and tourism that takes place on those lands don't generate any annual revenue? Besides the static land value?

Hahahaha, you can't be serious that the casinos are worth more than the 13 million acres given up. I'm sure the tribes would give up the casinos for the getting the land back. Don't forget that there would be no vacation/tourism industry in Minnesota without the treaties.

How gracious of us to let them do what they want on their reservation. I'm sure they'd that up to get all the land back.

The US got millions of acres of land, worth billions if not trillions. In exchange for letting them gillnet a few Walleye and shoot a couple Moose. Pretty easy to see who got the better deal.


Few huh? Learn to count.


You know you have no leg to stand on when you start bickering over petty little things. What has a greater value 2+ million acres of land or 2 million lbs of walleyes and 1000 moose? Don't forget without the treaty Mille Lacs could have a similar reservation system as Lower Red.
