Latest reduced bag limits
are bad news for tourism

Daily walleye bag limits of less than three fish on 345 lakes in Vilas, Oneida and Forest counties are the devastating result of spearing declarations made by Chippewa bands this spring.

 

In the tri-county area, there will be a three-walleye bag limit for sport anglers on just one lake, a two-fish bag limit on 209 lakes and a one-fish bag limit on 136 lakes, according to information released Monday by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Lodge taking steps for safe pier system

Letter to the Editor:

Over the years, I have experienced numerous requests from our guests at Wild Eagle Lodge for the replacement and expansion of our pier system.

He also worked with the Wilderness Society and played a role in the establishment of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. What a legacy!

Trolling plan was political maneuver

Letter to Editor:

The Department of Natural Resources Spring Fish and Wildlife public hearing and Wisconsin Conservation Congress meeting took place last week.

The big issue on the agenda at the Vilas County hearing in St. Germain was motor trolling. I would guess at an attendance of nearly 200. I have been to many of these in the southern part of the state and they are often an exercise in patience as some strange positions are articulated by people who like to hear their own voice.

I was impressed with our group
