I was talking with people at Gander Mountain last night and we were discussing the limits of panfish in WI. Personally, from what I see on Lake Onalaska, I get worried about people over-harvesting panfish. Anyone that fish’s this area knows that in the fall you can have 80+ boats pulling limits for days at a time. Ice fishing is the same thing. Limit after limit after limit. I see so many small fish laying on the ice that in my opinion don’t even make a good filet.
This begs the question…Should WI take after MN and drop the panfish limit from 25 to 10? I know this may sound strange, but what about putting in an 8″ size limit?
What are your thoughts?
