"The one local issue we will be seeking input are walleye regulations from Port Huron down to Lake Erie. Currently, there are inconsistencies in the daily possession limit and minimum size limit throughout this system. We will be discussing having one daily possession limit (six walleye) and one minimum size limit (15 inches) across the entire system. Furthermore, that daily possession limit would be tied to the quota allocation table that is used to set the Lake Erie bag limit. Therefore, if future quota allocations fall below the threshold to trigger a bag limit reduction on Lake Erie, that reduction would apply to the entire system. That would keep the walleye regulations consistent from Port Huron to Lake Erie." James Francis (Lake Erie Basin Coordinator, Michigan DNR Fisheries)

If people concentrated on the real important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.
