After reading the reponses to Bob's survey, I wonder why our northern states especially Minnesota are so reluctant to pass slot limits, and or reduce limits. The slaughter that goes on when the Walleyes are hitting in southern Minn. , where we have small and very few lakes, is heart wrenching. It seems to me that the people who would be offended by regulations that would improve the quality of fishing should not be fishing anyway.

Right on. And I think the fisheries biologists in IA. could take a few lessons from the people up north that are on the water day in and day out. Something else I think all states should adopt is a NO CULL rule. Just try to imagine the numbers of fish that are dragged around all day on stringers, bounced around in live wells, and dipped in and out of the water in a wire basket, only to be turned loose to die later because a better fish was brought in. Hundreds of thousands of fishermen x hundreds of thousands of fish. What a waste.
Gimme a break!
I've been fishing for over 50 years, and fishing in Minnesota has never been better in my lifetime.
