CO Matt Miller (Marine Unit) checked anglers on Lake Superior on one of the busiest weekends in years. Fine weather, calm winds, and good water temps for salmon prompted a lot of activity and a lot of sunburns. Anglers are reminded to keep their licenses with them when fishing. Assistance was given to a local agency with a suspicious vehicle call and training was attended with the US Coast Guard. Enforcement action taken for angling and boating violations
