Officers say that the three most common violations are too many lines, no fishing license in posses- sion, and oveflimit. "The real message is that good fishing is still happening around the state," said CO Jeff Birchem of Baudette. "So get out there and enjoy the great resources that Min- nesota has to offer, follow the rules, and be safe!" Minnesota anglers are allowed to use two lines in the winter, except on trout lakes where only one line is allowed. Anglers must have a valid Min- nesota fishing license in their pos- session while fishing. Anglers should take a little extra time to familiarize themselves with the regulations that are relevant to the lake they're fishing. Fish with statewide length lim- its, such as muskie, sturgeon, cat- fish, salmon, splake, brook trout, brown trout, and rainbow trout, must be transported with head and tail intact so the fish can be mea- sured. Northern pike and walleye are exempt from this rule. Sauger that are dressed or filleted will be counted as walleye. Likewise, when on or fish- ing experimental, special, border or other waters with size restric- tions different from statewide reg- ulations, all fish for which the size restriction applies must have their heads, tails, fins, and skin intact and be measurable. The exception is fillets, which may be possessed if the person is preparing a meal, or if the fillets have been packaged by a licensed fish packer.
