Michigan posts new rules for upcoming fishing season
Lansing, Mich. (AP) – New guidelines have been put in place heading into Michigan's 2012-13 fishing season.
The state Department of Natural Resources says the bow and spearfishing season has been expanded on some waters. Gizzard shad, gold fish and grass carp also have been added to the list of fish allowed to be taken.
Other changes include the reinstatement of the walleye size limit on Little Bay de Noc in the Upper Peninsula. No more than one walleye over 23 inches long is allowed per day north of Peninsula Point Lighthouse to the mouth of the Ford River.
The daily limit of yellow perch on Lake Gogebic in Gogebic and Ontonagon counties is 25. No more than 5 fish at lengths of 12 inches or longer are allowed.
Michigan's angling season begins Sunday.
