CO Mitch Sladek (Big Lake) worked fishermen on area lakes and issued summons and written warnings for fish house registration, failure to display registration, and no reflectors. He checked snowmobilers on grant-in-aid trails. He also took enforcement action on a number of snowmobile violations.
CO Rick Reller (Buffalo) spent time making sure fish houses had litter picked up around their house before they needed to be off the lake. A lot of anglers forgot to get their 2014 fishing license before heading out on the lake this past weekend. 2013 licenses expired February 28, 2014. Enforcement action was taken for angling without a license and drug possession.
CO Todd Langevin (Center City) reports receiving calls regarding the ice shelter removal date. A few anglers were having trouble getting shelters off due to snow depth and drifts. Most anglers had prepared for the shelter date in advance and by the weekend, most shelters were off area lakes. Ice shelters left at public accesses are still a problem in the area. Anglers are reminded that shelters cannot be left on public accesses at any time.
CO Tony Musatov (Sauk Rapids) checked ice anglers, snowmobilers, and marked ice shelters. Time was spent working on material for the upcoming academy. A TIP call was investigated for snowmobiles chasing coyotes.
CO Angela Londgren (Princeton) checked anglers, snowmobiles, and coyote hunters. Officer Londgren also received calls of injured animals, requests to speak at various events, and trespass complaints.
