Lake Superior Marine Unit

Last updated: 2015-04-14


Sgt. Keith Olson (Marine Unit) spent the majority of the week working fishing enforcement along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Angling activity on the local tributaries was also worked. Several boats were checked at Lake Superior accesses during the week. Wolf and beaver complaints were also fielded.

CO Matt Miller (Marine Unit) checked anglers and boaters as they start out a season on the water. Many boats were out enjoying the nice weather on the lake, but fishing success proved to be slow. ATVs were also out in force, with the usual violations for registration, helmets on juveniles and operation on county roads. Several fires were responded to, some cause by wind and power lines and others by illegal fires. This is not the time to be burning outside. Enforcement action was taken for angling and ATV violations.

CO Troy Ter Meer (Marine Unit) checked anglers and boaters throughout the week. Check your boat registrations and safety gear before heading out on the water. Flares expire and fire extinguishers can get discharged. He also assisted on some fires. Enforcement action was taken for boating and angling enforcement.
