District 8 - Duluth area

Last updated: 2017-03-27

CO Andy Schmidt (Duluth West) worked shore anglers along the North Shore and anglers were having some luck. The officer assisted Fond du Lac Wildlife Biologists with a wolf collar that was emitting a mortality signal. The collar was located and appears to have been a mishap with the collar fastener. Time was spent processing evidence and returning property to owners of cases that were closed. The officer also followed up on a fire with the EPA and responded to a complaint of an illegal fire.

CO Kipp Duncan (Duluth East) spent the majority of the week working fishing enforcement along the north shore of Lake Superior. Many people were having success from both shore and boat. Several calls were answered and returned. A TIP call of several unattended lines was investigated. Officer Duncan also attended a neighborhood meeting and answered law enforcement questions involving area concerns.

CO Jeff Humphrey (Cromwell) checked late ice angling activity and conducted patrols in the Fond du Lac state forest and Sawyer WMA. CO Humphrey investigated a fish shelter that was left abandoned on the Chub Lake public access. Two water/wetland violations were investigated with resource protection notification and cease & desist orders being issued. CO Humphrey also received a nuisance wolf and an injured deer complaint.
