Letter to the Editor: DNR has bigger fish to fry

To the Editor:

In regards to the article in the Dec. 15 issue of the Record, to put a bag limit on some of the area lakes, I feel the DNR should worry about the quality of the lake rather than the size of the panfish.

In some areas lakes such as: Bass, Moose and Mons, the fish taste like weeds.

In regards to the Mississippi River, after the spring run off, the water stays bog stained and doesn’t clear up enough to allow light penetration to promote good weed growth past four feet.

Could this be a result from the harvesting of the peat moss swamps up north?

There are a lot more important issues that need to be addressed rather than bag limit. — Gary Norberg, Little Falls
