MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Anglers in northern Wisconsin can keep largemouth bass this season for the first time in 22 years.

The bass season has been catch-and-release in northern Wisconsin since 1992. But Department of Natural Resources officials say the fish is doing so well that this year anglers can take them home. The largemouth season runs from May 3 to March 1, 2015.

Some restrictions still apply on smallmouths in the northern zone, however. Anglers still must immediately release smallmouth bass caught between May 3 and June 20. They can take smallmouths at least 14 inches long from June 21 to March 1, however.

Daily bag limits are five bass total.
