Size Limit Changes STARTING THIS year, the minimum size limit for bass was reduced to 10 inches on Crooked and Little Crooked Lakes in Van Buren County due to stunted bass populations. The minimum size limit for northern pike was also eliminated for several Upper Peninsula (U.P.) lakes, and the daily creel limit increased to five. Those lakes are Iron and Railroad in Iron County and the Shakey Lakes Chain in Menominee County. Although there’s no minimum size limit for pike on those waters, only one pike over 24 inches can be kept per day. For other new changes, see the special fishing regulations section of a current fishing digest or visit the DNR website.

for the love of gear

I LOVE gear. Hunting. Fishing. Even general outdoor supplies. In my house I have an entire room more or less dedicated to many of my associated outdoor trappings. There are tackle boxes full of lures and terminal tackle, from soft plastics to jigs to hard baits of various types, and of course plenty of weights. I have spools of different line, boxes of trout flies, waders, fillet knives and a host of other fishing-related gear. In the same room, I have hunting clothes, ammo boxes, a pair of binos and a rangefinder, no less than four different hunting packs and blind bags and numerous shooting accessories. I wish I could say these were well organized, but I generally try not to lie to people — unless it’s to exaggerate (slightly) about…

Despite their popularity as a big-game species and extensive research regarding their behavior, researchers are still unlocking the secrets of white-tailed deer behavior. As a hunter, using these findings can help you increase your odds of success this hunting season. Here are three tips that will improve your odds of connecting with the buck of your dreams this fall.
