    At the February 21, 2006 meeting of the Commission on Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks new sportfishing regulations were approved. The issue that generated the most interest and comments concerned a proposal by the MDWFP Fisheries staff to change the crappie length and creel limit regulations at Grenada Lake.

    The Commission voted to have a new 12 inch minimum length limit (which is an increase from the current 10 inch minimum lenght limit) on crappie at Grenada with a creel limit of 30 fish per person per day. No more than 5 of the 30 crappie can be under 12 inches.

    Responding to the wishes of crappie anglers, the Commission also approved limiting the number of poles for fishing at Grenada Lake to no more than three poles per person with no more than 2 hooks or lures per pole.

    These new regulations become effective March 21, 2006.

    Heel of a good idea on the length limits but a nightmare to enforce. Wow.

    Three pole max too! Awsome. Might as well let 'em sein they way they used to do it.
