I have heard several versions of the new walleye regulations. I just read this on the DNR site, looks like jigging the Detroit River during the spawn will still be open.
Right ? Comments?

Lake Erie walleye anglers in Michigan waters presently are allowed to fish throughout the year, observing a 13-inch minimum size limit and keeping up to six fish. The new regulations, effective April 1, 2004, will close the walleye season from April 1 to May 31, increase the size limit to 15-inches, and reduce the daily bag limit to five fish.

Anglers on the Detroit River will observe identical size and daily bag limits, but the fishery will remain open year round. Lake St. Clair and St. Clair River walleye fishing regulations will remain unchanged. The orders will remain effective through 2009, but will be reviewed annually.

Jigging on the Detroit River will remain open. Lake Erie is closed until the date you mentioned.

Remember that Lake Erie/Detroit River boundry is now and east/west line at the most sountherly tip of Celeron Island.
