LANSING, Mich. (AP) — State regulators are conducting an online survey and hosting public meetings this month to get feedback on proposed regulations that would expand Michigan’s bass fishing seasons.

The Department of Natural Resources is considering a number of options in consultation with an advisory group called the Warmwater Resources Steering Committee. Each alternative would protect bass populations and include a winter no-harvest season, a 14-inch minimum size limit and a daily possession limit.

The public meetings begin Monday in Iron Mountain and end July 24 in Houghton. A complete schedule is available at http://www.michigan.gov/fishing .

Anglers and non-anglers are encouraged to complete the bass regulations survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BassRegs .

It was initially contracted as a two-year project ending in 2015 as the bridge will undergo maintenance. Now the installation is among 11 sites being listed as endangered landscapes by the Cultural Landscape Foundation. A campaign is underway to keep the project funded through 2026.
