Violations were found for angling with extra lines, no angling license, no ATV registration, and possession of drug paraphernalia. A deer carcass dumping complaint was investigated and several animal complaints were received.

CO Brandon McGaw (Mora) checked ice anglers during the week. Fishing success was fair. Ice conditions have improved with most lakes ranging from10 to 12 inches of ice. Enforcement action was taken on registration issues on ATVs and snowmobiles and juvenile operation of ATVs.

CO Phil Mohs (Center City) completed field training and began his assignment in the Center City station. A snowmobile safety talk was given in Grandy. Ice fishing activity was checked on area lakes. Ice conditions varied on many lakes; anglers are reminded to leave their vehicle on shore when ice conditions are questionable. Anglers reported a very slow bite.

CO Rick Reller (Buffalo) finished field training new Conservation Officer Chelsey Collette. Fishing activity in the area has picked up with the better ice conditions, but the fish bite has been spotty. Several nuisance animal calls were handled and a report of dogs chasing deer was investigated. Enforcement action was taken for licensing and registration violations.
