Walleye Survey Shows Strong Populations

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has been "Electro-Fishing" area lakes. Owen Baird, Brainerd Area Fisheries Specialist, says that is a technique they use to stun fish for a minute to check walleye populations in area lakes. He says the fall survey looks good for the big walleye lakes: Whitefish, Gull, Pelican and North Long. Baird tells KLKS News, this class of fish will be pleasing anglers in three to four years. Last year at this time, we learned that walleye numbers were down in Mille Lacs, from the fall fish survey. Baird says that while they may have been down, there are still good fish numbers in the big lake.
