Ceded territory walleye bag limits 2013-2014
(p
osted 5-4-2013)

The initial Ceded Territory walleye bag limits for the 2013-2014 Season [PDF] are now available. The total daily bag limit for walleyes is five. If the lake you are fishing has a bag limit less than five, you can fish other lakes to fill your daily bag limit. While fishing, you cannot possess fish in excess of that lake's daily bag limit.

Angler bag limits are adjusted according to the percent of the safe harvest that the tribes declare they will take during the spring spearing season (see Managing Fish Populations in the Ceded Territory for an explanation of safe harvest). As the tribal harvest goal (as a percent of allowable harvest) increases, angler bag limits are reduced. This is done to ensure that the walleye population is not over harvested by the combination of spearfishing and recreational angling. The Tribes do not always take as many fish as they declare. When that happens, angler bag limits on individual lakes may be readjusted based on the percentage of safe harvest actually taken.

A comparison of angler and tribal harvest from lakes surveyed shows that angler harvest accounts for the majority of walleye harvest in the Ceded Territory. Although DNR creel clerks do not typically identify the sex of walleye harvested by anglers, creel studies in Escanaba Lake (Vilas County) suggest that the sex ratio of walleye harvested by anglers is close to 50-50.

A few old jokes:

Worse than the Weather
One Saturday morning a man gets up early, dresses quietly, gets his lunch made, puts on his long johns, grabs his dog, goes to the garage to hook up his boat to the truck and down to the driveway he goes.

Coming out of his garage the rain is pouring down: it is like a torrential downpour. There is snow and sleet mixed in with the rain. The wind is blowing at over 50mph.

Minutes later he returns to the garage. He comes back into the house. Turns the TV to the weather channel and he finds it is going to be very bad weather all day long, so he puts his boat back in the garage, quietly undresses and slips back into bed.

There he cuddles up to his wife's back, now with a different anticipation and whispers, "The weather out there is terrible". To which she sleepily replies, "Yeah, can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in it?"

My Blue Pajamas
A man calls home to his wife and says, "Honey I have been asked to go fishing at a big lake up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We'll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I've been wanting so would you please pack me enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and tackle box. We're leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick my things up. Oh, and please pack my new blue silk pajamas." The wife thinks this sounds a little fishy but being a good wife she does exactly what her husband asked. The following weekend he comes home a little tired but otherwise looking good. The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish? He says, "Yes! Lot's of Walleye, some Bluegill, and a few Pike. But why didn't you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you to do?" The wife replies; "I did, they were in your tackle box."
