OC, back in the 80's you could probably keep Northerns that size, not anymore. Nothing larger than 29.5 inches can be kept. I was in Ontario, Lake Of The Woods, Sioux Narrows area a couple weeks ago. This Northern was caught by a friend of mine in the first day, his second cast. 44 inch, estimated a little over 23 pounds. My largest Northern caught was 27 inches and my largest Walleye was 22 inches. I brought back my limit, 4 Northern, 4 Walley and a 12 inch Smallmouth.
