LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says a series of new fishing regulations is taking effect Monday.
Under the revised rules, each angler may take only one muskellunge per season. A free non-transferrable muskellunge harvest tag is required to harvest muskellunge in Michigan waters.
Additionally, there are regulations for northern pike that include a 24-inch to 34-inch protected-slot-limit with a daily possession of two northern pike on six waters.
Crossbows will be included as lawful gear on waters where bow and arrow use is allowed. The spearing prohibition on Houghton Lake in Roscommon County has been removed. Netting regulations have been modified and some season dates have changed.
The changes are listed in the 2013 Michigan Fishing Guide. It's available at major retailers and at the DNR website at http://www.michigan.gov/fishingguide .
