territory walleye bag limits 2013-2014
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
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
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?"
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."
