Dates to Remember:

October 13th
Quality Bluegill Initiative Public Forum: 6-8pm @ Bemo Building

The DNR would like anglers to weigh in on whether to keep fewer bluegills from some Minnesota lakes as a way to protect and improve the sizes of one of the state’s most prized and frequently caught fish. For years, anglers have been telling the DNR they are satisfied with sunfish (i.e. bluegill) numbers. But an increasing number of anglers – including guides, resort owners and fishing celebrities – are concerned about sunfish size quality. The prevalent use of electronic fish finders and other technological advancements combined with rapid social media communication have heightened those concerns. In response, fisheries managers aim to increase the number of lakes with reduced bag limits from 60 to 250 by 2023. Managers will use proven 5 or 10 sunfish bag limits to protect and improve sunfish quality on select lakes with both biological potential to produce large sunfish and strong public support.

Lakes in the Alexandria/Glenwood Area being proposed:
Gilchrist – 5 fish limit
Grove – 10 fish limit
Irene – 10 fish limit
Osakis – 10 fish limit
Whiskey – 5 fish limit
