In a similar vein to Eric Jacobson’s editorial, Joe Fellegy is very much to the point regarding the unnecessary and unethical extremism of the DNR’s shutdown of Mille Lacs walleye angling. June heat and drought: impacts at Mille Lacs? Mille Lacs Messenger Jul 3, 2021

“The upcoming July 1 – July 15 walleye fishing closure at Mille Lacs, when anglers can’t even “target” (fish for) walleyes, is, in my view, an unnecessary and unethical scandal.  Nothing in the Mille Lacs biosphere justifies such extremism. Blame “treaty” co-management, its off-base low walleye allocations, and hooking-mortality nonsense. Release-‘em-all isn’t enough? Yikes!”
