(WDAY TV) -- As the fishing season nears, the North Dakota Game and Fish decides on new, surprising regulations.

Anglers will now be able to catch five northern pike, instead of three. Another change, starting next winter, people spearing can go on nearly any lake except for ones that have Muskie.

Greg Power with the North Dakota Game and Fish Dept. says, "There is just fewer and fewer resources and more and more of us. So regulations tend to get more conservative. This is kind of unheard of to become more liberal."

New fishing licenses are required April 1st
