Yeah, good plan, lie to the people that are trying to analyze the lake.
You bitch that the DNR doesn't know what they're doing, but yet you advocate lying to the people who are trying to study what is happening. See the hypocrisy there? No wonder the lake is such a mess.
The fishermen don't trust the DNR, the DNR can't trust the fishermen because they are making up stories. The fishermen think they know more about marine biology than the experts. The experts are caving to political pressure. The Natives are taking the fish they are legally entitled to and laughing all the way to the bank. What a mess.
Nope, and nope.
The MNDNR finally, after years of denying it, admitted that they screwed up the lake by managing the lake as a Trophy Fishery, creating an imbalanced biomass in the lake.
Now the people that fish it, and want to take a couple of fish home pay the price for the political cowardice shown by the DNR.
Yes the Bands have a right to net the lake.
No the Bands do NOT have a "right" to net during spawning.
