Life just isn't fair
Filed in regards to Red Lake, Indian Netting, and Treaty Rights in general.
See Red Lake Walleye For Sale thread at Lakestatefishing.com
As per usual certain sportsmen are all worked up about those natives and their unfair fishing privileges. I understand why the butthurt exists. I just choose not to get worked up about it because it's not my circus and those are not my walleye. It doesn't bother me in the least that the Indians have unequal rights with them getting the better end of the deal according to some MN sportsmen's perspective; If they choose to be butthurt that is their business. I want no part of it.
Yeah, I was butthurt I couldn't fish Mille Lacs this past fall for walleye. But I'm really butthurt that I can't legally target bass the second the ice is off the lakes and that has nothing to do with treaty rights. I fish for other species instead, it's not a big deal. Red Lake had amazing crappie fishing for a few years. Then they restocked the Lake and the walleye fishing went gangbusters again. It looks like do to a couple of late Springs that Mille Lacs is coming back with a strong batch of 15" to 17" eyes. Lakes cycle, but the butthurt won't go away. Oh well, life just isn't fair.
