What was the "old slot size?" I was looking to be able to have the odd fish meal next year. We caught enough fish but not 18.1" or over. We were averaging 1 keeper for 25 fish caught. I am hoping to have the slot size start at 16" and still keep the same 2 fish limit. We also return the bigger spawners back to the water. Good eaters from 16 to 18 inches.

The old slot was everything between 40 cms and 60 cms goes back.
For all you old school fishers thats 15 3/4" and 23 5/8"

Id vote strictly catch and release. For less then the price of a dozen minnows I can buy a frozen snapper, grouper or my fav, ocean pompano, night and day compared to a pickerel or perch.
Just dont get why people would spend thousands to go fishing to catch fish that are required to be deep fried in order to be edible.

Couldn't disagree more. People that believe in catch and release only, just don't get it. Don't mess with nature; man.

when I say 4 fish makes a decent meal I like to have my wife and children have a fillet or two as well, Is that asking too much when you spend more than 500 bucks. I am not a local that can go back day after day and pig out on pickerel.

Nope not asking too much. I can't get my wife or kids to eat fish, so they don't factor in.

No fish tastes better than the one than the ones you catch yourself. never bought a store shelf fish and hopefully never will have to

Totally agree, no store-bought fish has ever tasted better than a fish you've caught yourself. I generally practice catch and release but the odd time I like to save a couple for dinner.

Sounds like everyone is on the same page except for one guy. Won't be long now to find out if there is any changes or tweaks to the regulations. Cannot beat a feed of fresh walleye that you have caught yourself. Thanks for everyone's replies. Beanstir

I release most fish I catch, will keep a couple depending on who is up with me. Wouldn't bother me if Nipissing became a catch and release lake or only barbless hooks were allowed.

For me the fun is in the catching and allowing others to catch the same fish again

And yes I buy fish and meat at the supermarket

I believe it was only one fish over 23 5/8" that you were allowed to keep back then as well.
