Everything seemed to be going good this season. Then I heard rumors of these meetings that were happening regarding my friends and I. I know there’s some type of co-management going on Mille Lacs, but to be honest, it’s way above my pay grade. But let me tell you what I’ve heard. There was a meeting not long ago that talked about allocations for the hook and line anglers and what not. Sounds like there was still some wiggle room on the number that would keep the angling season open for the rest of the year–so all was going to be fine.
Then, suddenly the lake became a buzz with the rumor there would be no more hook and line angling for my friends and me–the walleyes, after Sept. 6. I have to say, I was really surprised (and relieved of course) that suddenly there was an about face on the matter. But it was still very confusing. Like I said earlier, it’s above my pay grade. I have to say I’m going to miss messing around with the anglers having only half their bait in my mouth when they set the hook–missed me! So, if the rumor is true (and it actually is), you all better get out here while you can and try to catch me.
