ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — New special fishing regulations for certain Minnesota lakes and other general rule changes for the 2011 fishing season become effective Tuesday.

The Minnesota Fishing Regulations 2011 booklet summarizes the changes on page 4. It will be available Tuesday at Minnesota license agents and on the Department of Natural Resources web site.

Many of the new special regulations affect Big Sandy Lake in Aitkin County and several connected rivers and lakes, including a sunfish possession limit of five and size restrictions on walleyes.

The 2011 booklet does not list the special regulations for walleye on Red Lake and Mille Lacs Lake because they have not been established yet. These regulations will be announced later.

    Restrictions restrictions restrictions. The dnr needs to look in the mirror and RESTRICT THEMSELVES! If the state was not such a huge waste factory we could have the budget we need for increased stocking statewide and also for all species. Last time I looked, there are over five people with 100k incomes the work for the DNR. REALLY?????? Our land and rescources are not to be exploited by 100k business people with no what so ever care for it. Ask all these employees what is more imortant? GETTING RE-ELECTED OR PROTECTING OUR RESOURCES????
