Angling prospects for large northern pike have improved in recent years.
A special regulation for northern pike has been in effect since 2003: a 24-36 inch protected slot, with one fish allowed over 36 inches. The bag limit remains at three fish. The regulation is part of a statewide initiative to improve the size structure of pike populations in a number of lakes across the state. Lake Vermilion was chosen for this special regulation because of its potential to produce quality sized fish. An ice-out trap net assessment will be conducted in 2014 and 2015 to evaluate the regulation.MnDNR
