Mille Lacs walleye fishing during the month of May nearly doubled in intensity this year under a regulation that allowed each angler one keeper if the fish was 21 to 23 inches long or longer than 28 inches.
Biologists for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said the number of walleyes harvested throughout the duration of the special season was just under 4,000 fish and met expectations. That means chances are decent that Mille Lacs will be open to catch-and-release walleye fishing without closure for the rest of the summer.
