NorthStar Rules: Measuring fish

NorthStar Tournament Trail is revising our rule for length measurement (currently reads as: ‘fan tail’ measured - to fish being measured ‘pinched tail’). The change conforms to how the MN DNR checks fish…ie a 16 7/8” fish measured fan tail may be 17 1/8” pinched tail thus an illegal fish on Mille Lacs….. A similar situation occurs with the 21” fish…ie a fan tail under 21” may be over 21” pinched tail and be a legal fish. All measuring of fish will be with tail pinched from this point on.
