DNR continues efforts to gauge Mille Lacs walleye population

Since May 20, DNR fisheries staff have been recapturing tagged walleye using gill nets that are set for less than an hour. As the nets are retrieved, tag data is recorded, and all fish are released. (Minnesota DNR)

Based on the number of walleye that were originally tagged and the total number of tagged fish that turn up during the recapture, the DNR said it can make an accurate estimate of the lake’s walleye population.
