Last updated: 2014-03-11
CO Jim Tischler (Cuyuna Country State Rec. Area) monitored ice angling & shelter removal. He investigated a snow mobile trespass complaint near Cross Lake and patrolled snowmobile trails in the Brainerd area.
CO Bob Mlynar (Aitkin) checked fishermen and worked snowmobile enforcement. He also manned the LaserShot system and mini Wall of Shame at the Aitkin Sports Show.
CO Jim Guida (Brainerd) worked snowmobile enforcement and fish shelter removal. Compliance on shelter removal has been good. Some shelter owners are failing to remove the litter and debris from under the shelter. Investigations are pending. Officer Guida participated in a snowmobile saturation where some speed enforcement and trespassing complaints were monitored. Additional calls have been fielded regarding landowners depositing snow on the right of way/snowmobile grant-in-aid trail.
CO Karl Hadrits (Crosby) reports focusing on fish house removal issues. Despite really tough conditions on many area lakes, fish house owners did an amazing job complying with the removal deadline. Just a couple fish houses were found left out unclaimed on area lakes needing enforcement action.
