I fished Lake Poinsett for the first time this summer in a celebrity fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club. It was great fun and we caught a ton of fish.

But the size of the fish was mostly the same for everyone we landed. That's been a concern of many who fish that popular lake in eastern South Dakota.

Now the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) wants your input on what to do about the size over population.

The GFP will host a public meeting regarding the Commissions proposal to remove the 15 inch minimum length limit on walleyes in Lake Poinsett. The meeting will be October 11th at 6:30 PM at the Methodist Camp Retreat Center on Lake Poinsett.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide specific information regarding the Lake Poinsett fishery and to gather public input regarding the potential regulation removal.

If approved and finalized by the GFP Commission in November, the regulation would not be officially removed until January. 1, 2018.
