The proposed regulations are: daily bag limit of five sunfish, five crappie, three walleye per day (with a 17-inch minimum size); 12-20 inch protected slot for largemouth bass, six fish limit with one over 20 inches. Also, a protected slot limit of 24-36 inches for northern pike (daily bag of three, one over 36 inches).  If approved, the regulations would take effect in 2009 and be in place for 10 years.
