Well, the front page of the Winnipeg Free Press today had an article on the new regs for 2000 - States that " As of April 01, 2000,...in the whiteshell/Lac du Bonnet area all walleye between 38 and 70 cm (or 14" - 27.5") must be released"
I don't know what to think of this one. It is completely opposite of last years regulations.
I guess I'd better get a smaller frypan!

Yeah, I saw that too. That 38 cm works out to just over 15 inches. Before it was nothing under 14, now it's going to be nothing over 15. I can understand them protecting the bigger fish, but in my opinion, 15 inches is a bit small.

the slot size mentioned does seem to be to low
45 - 70 cm would be better as we have had this on lake of the prairies for a number of years.
we now enjoy what has been called world class
walleye fishing. we fished the prairie classic the
first part of june last year, and on the second
day we caught over 90 walleye, 30% where between
65-70 cm. only 5 of the 90 where keepers 45 cm
or less what a way to manage a fishery.
there were 9 fish over the 70 cm wieghted in.
