CO Keith Olson (Marine Unit) checked kamloop anglers along the North Shore. The recent heavy snowfall has the snowmobile enthusiast out in full force. Use caution on the area lakes heavy snow will surely produce troublesome slush. He gave a presentation at the USCG annual safety stand down meeting
Officer Matt Miller (Marine Unit) checked a few commercial netters getting their equipment secured as winter set into the North Shore. Fur registration was worked at the Two Harbors office, and one incidentally caught marten was seized. Trappers are reminded that with the heavy snows, they still need to remove their traps from the woods, and any animals found after the season cannot be removed until after contacting a Conservation Officer. The officer helped with response to a railroad derailment in Two Harbors where two people were hurt but both survived. Enforcement action was taken for trapping and ATV violations
Officer Troy TerMeer (Marine Unit) work on paperwork, patrolled for trappers, and snowmobilers throughout the week. He also performed equipment maintenance.
