MADISON (WRN) - 4 ice fishermen from Wisconsin could be fined a total of $3,600 for keeping dozens more walleye than what’s allowed in northwest Minnesota. They told DNR officer Brice Vollbrecht that they knew the limits – but they felt entitled to the fish because of the long drive they took from Wisconsin. As of Tuesday, their citations were not filed with authorities – so the anglers’ names and hometowns were not released. Vollbrecht was doing a routine check of ice shanties on Upper Red Lake last week when he got suspicious about the number of walleye the 4 anglers had taken. The possession limit is four on Upper Red Lake, and only one can be longer than 26 inches. Otherwise, those longer than 17 inches must be thrown back. Vollbrecht said he found a total of 56 fish, and some were longer than the legal limits. He said two of the anglers were in their 20’s, one was in his 50’s, and the other was in his 60’s. They were not related. They each face fines of $800 to $900, plus restitution for the value of the fish.
