I just thought of a couple more things. One fun, or at least mildly entertaining activity is geocaching. It involves finding a container that was hidden and contains a log of finders and sometimes some trinkets. Is so, you take something and leave something in place of it. The locations are specified by GPS coordinates. On a geocaching Web sight
Another is that I recall reading, in MN volunteer I think, about a sna or something on an island in Frazier bay area, againa little foggy here with some old growth trees. I remember thinking it would be fun to go there. Sorry for the nebulous description. I'd appreciate more info if anyone has any idea about the place
Also, once the gulls rip the guts out through the gills, down they go.
The quota for 2019 is 87,000 pounds. Let's say that 50k pounds, the mortality from last year is the mortality for 2019. So that is maybe 20,000 fish on the whole lake over a 200 day period. Average a hundred dead walleye a day. Maybe several times that at peak times. But a couple hundred dead walleye on a lake of 207 square miles... one per square mile up to maybe a few per square mile...
Not what I would think of as "seeing a bunch of floaters" . And the wind disperses them away from the place they were released, so some would be in places where people aren't fishing...
A distributor in MN that I've heard of before although I have not worked with them nor bought any product from them.
I would check with your local Fish and Wildlife departments and see if it is legal for you to plant this first
