Chats with the DNR officers can be a great time to find out about spots and tactics, unless you're doing something unknowingly (or knowingly) that is illegal. When I started fishing during the summer I failed to remember only one line per person can be used (unlike on the ice where two lines are allowed) and had a very nice officer not write me ticket after an honest conversation.
Clearly it's in your best interest to follow the regulations unless you really want to pay a large 'donation' to the wildlife fund.
Here's the bag limits for inland waters for the 2018 season. (This may not include ever regulation, so for more information you should go download the DNR PDF here)
I hope you find this information useful, for more fishing tips, trips, and gear check out our other blog posts and visit the Ole Store for more gear.
