Walleye anglers who fish Mille Lacs Lake this winter will do so under the same bag and slot limit that has been in effect since May, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Following fish population assessments this fall, the DNR determined that maintaining the existing regulation was appropriate. That regulation allows anglers to harvest walleye between 18- and 20-inches, except one over 28 inches may be harvested. The possession limit is two.

The walleye fishing season runs through Feb. 23 and reopens May 10. The walleye regulation for the 2014 open water season will be announced in late winter following an evaluation of harvest data.
