Outdoor Insights: Minnesota DNR’s proposed regulation designed to grow bigger pike in popular Gull Lake chain near Brainerd

A new proposed regulation by the Minnesota DNR for the Gull Lake chain of lakes near Brainerd, Minn., would protect northern pike between 30 and 40 inches and implement a two-fish bag, with only one over 40 inches. (Stock photo from Mark Morrison)
If you like healthy northern pike, then the Minnesota DNR’s proposal to implement a 30- to 40-inch protected slot on the Gull Lake chain north of Brainerd deserves your support. The agency has several special and experimental regulations open to public comment through Oct. 20, including the idea to improve pike size on the 13,000-acre chain, which contains Gull and Upper Gull, Margaret, Ray, Love, Nisswa, Roy, and Round lakes in Cass and Crow Wing counties.
