The dnr manager has "no idea" how fish stock was replenished so fast? So you're saying they don't know what they are doing? Can we get some good help maybe?

@tunesmith, The Red Lake reservation has been a black hole for federal funds for decades. There for the tribal portion of any stocking is our tax dollars.

Why would you not want to restore the Carppie population in that lake, it would be good for everybody.

Red Lake Tribe didn't pay squat, the BIA funded it and take a guess who funds the BIA.. Thanks to all us 'other' Americans, you have a resource to destroy once again..
