Interesting read on the recommendations for walleye slot size for 2021. I am all for a change to a smaller slot size that would protect the larger spawning females. These smaller fish are the best eating and we are looking forward to a few more fish fries. This year we are going to track the size of all fish we catch and see how many fish will be in the new recommended slot size for 2021. The approved recommendation was to change the slot size for 2021 to a narrow fishable slot for walleye of 400 mm (15.748 inches) to 450 mm (17.165 inches”).

That's quite a narrow slot but it's way better than what it is now. Never understood the encouragement of keeping the breeding stock.

This makes more sense. My experience is a lot of fish are in the 16-17.5" range now.

Too many people going up and catching so many within this new recommended slot size and having to throw them back the past couple of years, this would sure help people keep a couple for a little taste if it were to go into effect. Personally I would like to see the two fish limit maintained but I would like to see 1 fish between 40cm to 46cm and 1 fish over 46cm or 2 fish in the 40cm to 46cm slot size for sports licence and maybe 1 between 40cm to 46cm for a conservation licence. If people can't get a little fish fry in while they are up there it is going to start hurting the operators as people will look to go elsewhere.

Not to be ignored but this new slot limit would help bring more tourist to the outfitters. Hopefully they would be fully booked....summer and winter.
