Officials ease fishing limits to empty Lake Yankton



    PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - It's open season and then some for anglers on Lake Yankton.
 
     Wildlife officials are looking to eradicate the entire fish population in the lake because of an abundance of rough fish, including Asian carp.
 
     Beginning Friday and running through Sept. 9, South Dakota anglers may take up to three times the daily and possession limits of game fish with no regards to length limits.
 
     Up to six lines each will be allowed, as well as minnow seines, spears, archery, dip nets and snagging.
 
     Officials are warning anglers that the shorelines will consist of soft mud because the lake is being partially drained to help with the renovation.
