Mille Lacs walleyes showed, but anglers were in short supply
On Mille Lacs – By Mille Lacs standards, Saturday’s opening day crowd of walleye anglers was sparse.
But for those who weren’t turned off by the state’s new season-long catch-and-release mandate for the big lake, the fish were plentiful.
“It seemed really strong,” said Shawn Gallery, the top fishing guide at Red Door Resort and Motel on the north side. “We caught 16 walleyes in our first hour.”
