They finally figured out it didn't make much difference in the overall fish catch rate.

My friend called the DNR last week for an update. The governor finally signed off on it several weeks ago. It needs to be signed off by some others (standard procedure). There is a slim chance it will be approved and legal by may 1st, but more than likely it will be July 1st.

This is what was printed in the Milwaukee Journal this past Saturday:

Trolling rule update: The statewide trolling rule approved in April 2014 by the Natural Resources Board languished for more than 10 months in the office of Gov. Scott Walker and is now under legislative review. As a result, it won't be in place for opening day. If it passes the final review without changes, it could be in effect in July, according to state fisheries managers.

Will this affect the bigger lakes such as Winnebago & Green Bay?

Winnebago and Green bay already allow trolling. Trolling would now be allowed in the counties that did not allow it. Below is a recap of the new trolling regulations:

Trolling would be legal with at least one line per angler on all inland waters in Wisconsin.

In 55 counties in the state, all inland waters would be open to trolling with up to three lines per angler.

In the remaining 17 counties - on waters not currently open to trolling - trolling would be allowed but would be limited to one line per angler and no more than two lines per boat, which means no more than two anglers trolling at a time. (Door, Florence, Fond du Lac, Iron, Jackson, Lincoln, Marathon, Marquette, Menominee, Milwaukee, Oneida, Ozaukee, Sawyer, Sheboygan, Vilas, Washington and Waushara.)
