Lake Superior Marine Unit

Last updated: 2017-07-24

CO Keith Olson (Lake Superior Marine Unit) spent time checking boaters and anglers on Lake Superior and area lakes in the Duluth area. The periodic rain and storms during the week had many watching the weather closely as they ventured out on the waters. CO Olson handled a complaint of a landowner shooting at waterfowl on Pike Lake. Inland, some hearty brook trout anglers checked walking a stretch of area streams stated the bugs were so bad at one point they had to run into an opening to get some relief from the deer and horse flies. They caught and released several brook trout. Lake Superior has slowed and lake trout made up the majority of the fish caught.

CO Matt Miller (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked boaters and anglers on Lake Superior. Some nice lake trout, salmon, and even an errant whitefish have shown up in angler?s live wells. A complaint of ATVs operating in the Sucker River was checked, with multiple violations found for ATV and alcohol use. Enforcement action was taken for ATV violations.
