DNR seeks comments on Lake Vermilion special walleye regulation

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold a public meeting Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. to provide an update on the status of the Lake Vermilion walleye population, answer questions and gather input on the future of the Lake Vermilion walleye regulation. The meeting will be at the DNR area office, 650 Highway 169, Tower.

For those who are unable to attend the meeting, public comments will be accepted at the DNR Central Office, 500 Lafayette Road., St. Paul, on Sept. 28, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Comments may also be sent to Jeff Eibler, acting area fisheries supervisor, 650 Highway 169, Tower, Minn. 55790 or emailed to jeff.eibler@state.mn.us.

Lake Vermilion walleyes have been protected with a slot limit since 2006. The special regulation requires the immediate release of all walleye between 17 and 26 inches. One walleye more than 26 inches is allowed in a possession limit of four. The current walleye regulation may be modified, extended or dropped.

The deadline for comments on the Lake Vermilion special walleye regulation is Oct. 14.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
