It is likely that more and more spearing will now be the choice of harvesting walleye. This year a special regulation for the lake was introduced. Instead of 10 walleye bag per day it is now 30 walleye bag per day for Mille lacs band members and for WI members 100 walleye bag per day.

But pounds are pounds....

Have.you every been to a creel????

MN DnR officers are just observers. They do nothing but stand about They are there.to enforce boating regulations.

The biologists that weigh, measure, and sex the fish are tribial DnR and have been both native and non-native in the past.

The only thing MN DnR will sample is the.age of of a few of the larger fish. That sample is a bone fragment dissected from the inner skull of the fish.

Get a clue...

Because someone doesn't know or understand a process they need to "get a clue"? Ha! Red are you one of those savants that knows everything?

Do you have a link to those increased bag limits, or is this more here-say?

It would be an interesting topic to put up on the MNDRN Facebook page, why licensed non-band members are still prohibited from taking fish, while band members get an increase of 300% to 1000% in their bag limit.

At this point I am a bit skeptical.

Good point bander,I snift around and found nothing,but if what red put up is true I'm in shock! hopefully the new regs is to appease the natives that couldn't net this year. Just another black eye for us tax paying license buying fishermen.

The posted regs are still at 10 walleyes for tribal hook and line.http://glifwc.org/Regulations/MN_HookLine.pdf

That being said, if you are fishing Mille Lacs, watch out for tribal nets. They're still netting the lake during the day and spearing at night while the nets are "soaking" Some of the netters are out of Cedar Creek public access and some are out of North Garrison public access.

These obstacles can take out a lower unit, guys.

So now they feel the need to nett during our walleye season! I thought they agreed not to nett during our season?

Remember this?

On January 14, 1989 Art Gahbow, Chief Executive Officer of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, stated "As of right now we are on the offensive. We are on the attack. To state it simply, we will take it back.... The goal is to get back the original Mille Lacs, Sandy Lake and Rice Lake Reservations. The Lake Lena area will also be expanded.... One way or the other, we will take it back.... The State of Minnesota does not understand that we are a sovereign government.... Commissioner of Natural Resources Don Wedll, I want you to have our 1837 Treaty litigation underway in the next six months.... All work hours, all business transactions, all contract negotiations will be aimed at one goal: restoration of the reservation lands.... We will not back down. We are on the attack. There is no surrender."

I remember this statement from last year,maybe the media reposted?

Its long past due to cut the baggage with the natives,stop state and federal funding,welfare and healthcare,what about state toll booth's at the casino's entrance? after all we non-native's built the roads,thats tax payers $$$.
