Apparently there was a canoe that went out this morning... No other boats though.

Fish Fry my @$$#!.

At least they waited until AFTER the Walleye finished spawning.......if that is any sort of silver lining in it.

Audrey Thayer, a White Earth member who also works for the ACLU in Bemidji, called it a "wonderful day" and said she hoped people would be able to keep their fish for a fish fry in the afternoon.

Is this lady nuts? WTF gives them the right to do this?!? ACLU is a bunch of liberal jackasses who think anyone that isn't white should be able to do whatever the hell they want! Well to hell with the natives! I wasn't a racist person till this bullsh!t...

I was there for a bit. A 300ft net was placed a few hundred yards out into the lake by two guys. The DNR pulled it up and confiscated it. Could see fish in it, pike and walleye I'm sure, as the pulled it up. Lots of media coverage. They were starting in on a microphone with their demonstration when I left. I already know what they have to say.

Been reading alot lately on this issue,came across this quote as to "WHY" just one reason the local communities around mile laces are suffering,and he really beileves what he's spewing~

Emotions run high around tribal rights issues and it's easy for people to blame the decline of businesses on the Supreme Court's decision, said James Zorn, the executive administrator of the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, which is the agency responsible for implementing off-reservation treaty rights for 11 Ojibwe nations in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

"When in reality," he said. "There are many reasons why the economy has changed. The tourism economy -- we've gone to many more golfers, many more bicyclists. People who just don't use the lakes for the same reasons they did 40 or 50 years ago."

In addition to economic concerns, local business owners also say they don't buy the tribal government's arguments that they need to hunt and fish to feed their families and preserve their cultural heritage. They point to the financial success of the band's casino, and how infrequently they see children and young people net.

Eno said anglers have a culture to maintain, too.


Oh,and there is alot more,
