CO Darrin Kittelson (Int?l Falls) reports lots of people out enjoying the holiday weekend with the weather finally cooperating. Boating and fishing enforcement activities on Rainy Lake were monitored with enforcement action taken for no angling license in possession, insufficient number of PFDs, operating watercraft after sunset without required lighting, and overlimit of walleye. Instruction of emergency vehicle operation and driving training for fellow officers was conducted at Camp Ripley.
CO Troy Fondie (Orr) reports a quiet 4th of July weekend. Area lakes were monitored for fishing and boating activities. Activity levels appear down from previous years. Time was spent at public access sites, monitoring area forest roads and following up on a report of a beached blue whale. Turns out it was the Hildabeast eating puppies on the beach.
CO John Velsvaag (Cook) checked anglers this past week on Lake Vermilion. Angling was slow. CO Velsvaag also worked the lake over part of the holiday weekend and observed lots of boating activity, with multiple complaints on jet skis operating too fast near shore and other boaters.
