DNR board approves daily 3 walleye limit next spring

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Department of Natural Resources’ board has adopted a three-walleye limit for lakes and rivers within Wisconsin’s ceded territory for next spring.

The board approved the regulations during a meeting in Bowler on Wednesday. The rules include provisions establishing that walleye taken from most waters in the territory must be at least 15 inches. Anglers can’t keep walleye between 20 and 24 inches, however, and can keep only one walleye larger than 24 inches.

The regulations are designed to protect the walleye population after the state’s six Chippewa tribes take their share.

Walker says he won’t take Cabinet post, will serve out term

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he won’t accept a Cabinet position if a Republican is elected president, plans to remain on as governor through the end of his term, and is undecided about whether to seek a third term in 2018.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (https://tinyurl.com/qghuds7https://tinyurl.com/qghuds7 ) that Walker made the comments in a call with donors Wednesday. Walker abruptly dropped out of the race Monday after fundraising dried up.

Walker also told donors his campaign didn’t have enough money to continue and he wasn’t convinced that downsizing his staff and budget would have allowed him to win the GOP nomination.

A spokeswoman for Walker told The Associated Press she was not on the call and couldn’t immediately verify the governor’s remarks.
