As of Thursday, there will be some new regulations for fishing around the broader area of Chicago outdoors.
These are all the ones I noted in northeast Illinois.
Busse: All live bait in excess of 8 inches must be rigged with a quick-set rig.
Heidecke: New regulations: crappie have a daily bag of 15, largemouth and smallmouth bass have a protected slot (12-18 inches) with a daily creel of three (only one may be longer than 18).
Kankakee/Iroquois rivers: Walleye, sauger and saugeye must be 14 inches or longer with a protected slot from 18-26 inches; the daily creel is three, only one of which can be larger than 26 inches.
Mallard: All live bait in excess of 8 inches must be rigged with a quick-set rig.
Whalon: Two pole and line fishing only.
