LANSING, MI – New minimum size limit regulations for lake trout and splake on northern Lake Huron take effect today. The Department of Natural Resources today announced new lake trout and splake regulations in the northern portion of Lake Huron, specifically for Management Units MH-1 and MH-2 (see descriptions below). The changes will be implemented on June 14, 2012, and include:

A daily possession limit of three (3) lake trout or splake

A minimum size limit for lake trout and splake of 15 inches

A possession season from May 1 through Sept. 30

Additionally, the revised regulations set the lake-wide minimum size limit for lake trout and splake at 15 inches throughout Lake Huron.

These regulation changes affect the following Lake Huron fishing ports:

MH-1 Ports: Cedarville, Cheboygan, DeTour, Hammond Bay, Mackinaw City, Rogers City and St. Ignace

MH-2 Ports: Alpena, Black River, Presque Isle and Rockport

These regulations will remain in effect until March 31, 2017, or until Fisheries Order FO-200 is amended or rescinded, whichever comes first. While these regulations may be reviewed and amended annually, a review of these regulations will occur no later than Aug. 1, 2016.

MH-1 and MH-2 Legal Descriptions

MH-1 is bounded on the west by the Mackinac Bridge, on the north by an east-west line from the village of DeTour in Chippewa County at Latitude 46°00'N to the west shore of Drummond Island and an east-west line from the east shore of Drummond Island at Latitude 46°00'N to the international boundary, and on the east and south by a line beginning where Longitude 083°30'W intersects the international boundary near Drummond Island in Chippewa County and extending southward along said longitude to Latitude 45°30'N, then extending westward along said latitude to Longitude 083°40'W, then extending southward along said longitude to shore about 3.5 miles southeast of Adams Point in Presque Isle County.

MH-2 is bounded on the north by MH-1, on the east by the international boundary, and on the south by an east-west line extending from the shore about 1 mile north of Black River in Alcona County at Latitude 44°50'N and extending eastward along said latitude to the international boundary.
