Tribal commercial fishing nets likely will return to Red Lake this summer for the first time since the walleye fishery was rejuvenated, but authorities say the netting will be much more restricted than it was in the past.

The Red Lake Band of Chippewa has been commercially fishing walleyes, using hook and line, since 2007. Last year, the band harvested about 400,000 pounds of walleyes, far below the 820,000-pound quota set under an agreement between the band and state and federal authorities.


Now I have to tell you that I have a problem with this and other lakes that allow tribal netting. A point that I rarely see come up is the effort that the State of Minnesota and the DNR goes through to rejuvinate these lakes and the money that citizens of Minnesota pay in taxes to stock these lakes with the end result going to tribes that are allowed to net these lakes. There seems to be something just a bit wrong about this whole situation.

We have had many posts on this subject. In fact, I searched the forum and found a lot of stuff, from Red Lake going dead, to the rejuvination and now to the netting. Some threads of interest, if you are so inclined...
