2017 Lake Vermilion walleye slot     expanded.

2017 Lake Vermilion walleye slot expands “keeper” range.  A 2″ increase in allowed walleye keepers will open up the harvest of walleyes in the 18 – 20″ range, previously protected by the lake’s 2006 slot.  Now walleyes 20 – 26″ will be protected, with one over 26″ allowed in the 4 fish bag limit.  The research completed points to an abundant population of healthy female walleyes, still protected by the new slot.  It presents the chance to keep some bigger male walleyes that fall in the 18 – 20″ range.  Spots are filling quickly for the upcoming season.

Stop wishing….Come fishing!!
