For all of the avid fisherman out there — this is for you!
According to LakeNewsOnline.com, this regulation, beginning March 1, was put in place over concern “about the potential over-harvest of these fish”.
Please be aware of the following regulations as you fish at the Lake of the Ozarks this year. The new regulations are listed below:
- Ten blue catfish daily
- A protected slot-length limit of 26-34 inches (7-16 pounds)
- Fish within the slot must be returned to the water unharmed immediately.
- Two blue catfish larger than 34 inches
- These two fish would count toward the daily limit of 10.
