 For the first time, efforts to get the lake's walleye population healthy again could mean separate rules for males and females.

That DNR personnel would even consider such a fiasco for a major Minnesota fishery—more b.s. for Mille Lacs in the name of "treaty fisheries management"—is intolerable. When will DNR leaders heed the advice of their citizen input group and draw on the state's political and legal clout to end the Indian Industry’s rogue spawning-time gill-net fishery? (No court ordered a single gill net in Mille Lacs.) The costs and impacts at many levels are too much. And when will Minnesota's conservation groups, state leaders, and powerful journalists like Dennis Anderson turn over a new leaf and campaign against the inexcusable madness?

Well on the bright side in about 10 years there should be a great Crappie fishey, aka Red Lake. I have a feeling that this lake will have to crash before real action is taken....

So wait, now anglers might have to learn how to sex a fish? Good luck with that...

Dennis, this just confirms that the DNR, the fisheries managers and the tribal people have NO CLUE how to manage this lake. When the Indians realize that they have another red lake situation on their hands, they will then tell the DNR to fix it AGAIN! And as dumb as we are, we will! Please, dont ever walk into a casino, ever!!!

langstoner,red is is a good fishery,guess who fixed it like usual~your welcome!

Red Lake is still a fine fishery - and your taxes did not go up to accomodate the restoration. Quit trying to scare people. One fish for you! A sport fishery!

Red Lake members tax dollars also assisted in this fish restoration, so you're welcome. If you believe only white tax dollars went into this restoration, we'd like to see your proof of that.

The BIA paid the Natives share of restocking Red Lake and guess who funds the BIA- Federal Government... Natives paid very, very little, for the destruction they caused by using Gill nets...

Lots of reports from fisherman that are going out only because the big fish are biting, they arent catching any keepers, and dont care... Too bad others go out with nothing in mind other than to destroy the resource, because they can..
