HOUGHTON, Mich. (AP) -

New rules have taken effect for pursuing lake trout and splake in Lake Michigan and portions of Lake Huron.

The Michigan Natural Resources Commission approved the revisions this week in Houghton.

In the Lake Michigan lake trout management units of MM 1 through MM 4, lake trout and splake will be managed under a new minimum size limit of 15 inches. The maximum size limit regulation was removed.

In the Lake Michigan lake trout management units of MM 6 through MM 8, the lake trout and splake possession season was changed to open all year. The same change was made for the Lake Huron lake trout management units of MH 3 through MH 6.
