CO Keith Olson (Lake Superior Marine Unit) attended the PolyMet meeting in Duluth, checked area lakes north of Duluth, and fielded questions on border water regulations and season closing dates in February. Olson also checked North Shore anglers in pursuit of coho salmon and Kamloops rainbow trout. Ice anglers are starting to appear on the pack ice in the Duluth area, some within a 100 yards of open water.
CO Matt Miller (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked ice and shore anglers, where salmon and herring are a common catch. A public comment hearing on the PolyMet project was worked, and questions were answered about deer hunting scenarios. A trial was attended on a residual issue from last deer season. Enforcement action was taken for angling and snowmobile violations.
Lake Superior Marine Unit vacant.
