CO Brent Grewe (Minnetonka) spent the week checking anglers and following up with complaints. CO Grewe attended training at Camp Ripley and served a restoration order. Violations included a sunfish overlimit and taking bass out of season.

CO Leah Weyandt (Mound) spent the week following up on zebra mussel violations on Lake Minnetonka. A TIP call was investigated regarding over limit on a local Carver County lake. CO Weyandt spent a day at Camp Ripley for spring qualifications on her firearms. Anglers and boaters were checked by CO Weyandt and CO Leuthardt on Prior Lake.

CO Chelsie Leuthardt (Prior Lake) saw an increase in boaters and anglers throughout Scott County; likely due to the beautiful weather over the weekend. Leuthardt worked with a neighboring CO and Scott County deputies during the week and weekend patrolling area lakes and the Minnesota River. Many anglers were having success catching pan fish but the walleye bite was slow. Enforcement action was taken on angling without a license, angling without a license in possession, no boat registration, no legal life saving device aboard a watercraft and various other violations.

CO Vang Lee (ELCOP) worked fishing and boating activities in the west metro area lakes. He continued to follow up on AIS violations in Hennepin County and took care of equipment maintenance. Questions on fishing and state park regulations were answered to the Asian community.
