Illegal Netting Stopped

(AP)  The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has moved in to stop a ring suspected of illegally netting and selling walleye on two northern Minnesota Indian reservations.

Similar allegations have surfaced for years on Leech Lake and Lake Winnebigoshish, both of which are partly within reservation boundaries on the Leech Lake and Red Lake reservations.

Tribal members are allowed to net fish for personal consumption. 

No one has been charged yet in the operation.
