FISHING REGULATIONS
(2008-04-29)
(wgvu) - F THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES
IS SEEKING PUBLIC INPUT ON A DRAFT PROPOSAL THAT WOULD ALLOW
ANGLERS TO HAVE UP TO THREE LINES IN THE WATER WHILE FISHING IN
MICHIGAN.
THE RECREATIONAL FISHING LIMIT IS NOW TWO SINGLE LINES OR RODS,
WITH EXCEPTIONS ALLOWING THREE FOR TROUT AND SALMON TROLLING ON THE
UPPER GREAT LAKES.
THE DNR SAYS THE FISH POPULATION CAN HANDLE HAVING MORE LINES IN
THE WATER. CATCH LIMITS WOULDN'T CHANGE SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE OF
THIS PROPOSAL.
BUT THERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW WELL THE HUMAN POPULATION
COULD JUGGLE THREE LINES IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES SUCH AS ICE
FISHING AND PIER FISHING.
THE DNR WILL COLLECT PUBLIC COMMENTS WELL INTO THE SUMMER. THE
EARLIEST CHANGES WOULD TAKE EFFECT WOULD BE NEXT YEAR.
