Watching the news tonight on Channel 5, they said that the DNR has changed the regulations for Smallies on Green Lake near Spicer. They said that you could keep a limit of 6 Smallies because the DNR wants to reduce their population to make more room for Walleyes. Can this be true?
Now this is Channel 5, that same station that yesterday had a story about Grouse season and showed us pictures of Hungarian Partridge running around inside of a pen. They also played the 1812 Overture when talking about the 4th of July (Hello Cyndy, 1812 Overture written by a Russian guy to commemorate the defeat of the French). Several years ago they ran a story about the opener of Walleye season and had a picture of a Bass int eh background, so there’s good chance they scrambled whatever the DNR told them.
I hope this isn’t true. If it is, the DNR needs to take off the blinders. Every lake doesn’t have to be managed for Walleyes..
