Abandoned net of 67 dead walleye on Lake Mille Lacs angers conservation group

A tip from a local resident led officials to an abandoned Indian gillnet on Lake Mille Lacs on May 20 that contained 67 dead walleye weighing 112.4 pounds.

Mille Lacs is co-managed between the state and eight bands of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians with court-affirmed treaty rights to net a portion of walleye. Each side agrees to a maximum amount of walleyes it can kill each season.
