New 2017 Walleye Regulation on Lake Vermilion

The Minnesota DNR has announced that anglers on Lake Vermilion will be able to keep walleye up to 20 inches long, with one allowed over 26 inches, starting with the May 2017 fishing opener. The new regulation will require release of all fish from 20 to 26 inches. Previously walleyes between 18 and 26 inches had to be released. The four-fish bag limit will remain the same.
