Now just because they say they are going to fish doesn't mean that they will. My theory is that the night before they're going to have a lil pow wow and drink too much fire water and miss out on the whole opener.

I hope you're right Bob, it may do just that and if the court feels strongly in opposition of this maybe they would look closer at other cases. But it's hard to have much faith in anything good going right these days, seems like if it is outrageous in my eyes it goes through no problem.
Got to believe the area COs will be there with their ticket books and I'm sure some sort of police security to keep things under control. When they say fish do they mean they are going to be fishing with rod/reel or are they planning on spearing?

It looks like this isnt going to happen at this point. Basically someone wanted some attention???

The Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Tribal Council’s legal department must seek approval from the Tribal Council before assisting in the organization any hunting, fishing or gathering demonstrations associated with the 1855 treaty.

In a press release from the Leech Lake Tribal Council, officials said as they seek Tribal Council approval, the legal department will assist the Tribal Council with its diplomatic negotiations with the state of Minnesota.

In a meeting Thursday morning, Tribal Council members made it clear they seek a diplomatic solution over advocating a demonstration the state might label as a violation of state law.

“The Council understands the desire of the Leech Lake people to exercise hunting, fishing and gathering rights under the 1855,” said Tribal Chairman Arthur “Archie” LaRose. “However, we need to sit at the table with the state and do our best to resolve the issues presented by the 1855 treaty in a diplomatic process.”

The notion of a fishing protest was an idea discussed by a group meeting on the 1855 treaty, facilitated by the Leech Lake, White Earth and Red Lake Reservations. The group considered the idea as one that would heighten public awareness of the band’s 1855 treaty. However, the group never had the opportunity to seek official support for the proposed demonstration from the elected leaders of Leech Lake.

Meanwhile, the Band urges individuals involved in any planned demonstrations to cancel such plans, and let the negotiations and diplomatic process with the State of Minnesota run its course.

In other words, Leech Lake attorney Frank Bibeau and Dale Greene were meeting with the state's most prominent media, from Minnesota Public Radio to the Star Tribune, telling the widest-possible audience about an illegal-fishing demonstration on Lake Bemidji, without an official tribal council okay? Hard to believe. Are their jobs secure?

Or maybe we misinterpreted your post?

Here's the piece from the Bemidji Pioneer. This would seem to take the edge off a little, but it remains a potentially big legal-political hassle. "The group never had the opportunity to seek official support for the proposed demonstration" sounds a little wierd.
