Charges are pending for several people after Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources conducted a major sting operation on Lake of the Woods. 40 officers took part in the sting after authorities obtained search warrants while investigating the activities of guides at various fishing and hunting locations.

According the Grand Forks Herald, an investigation uncovered “substantial and creditable information” and seized evidence to support several charges that will be filed soon.

Violations include too many walleye in possession, non-filing of proper license, and illegal transporting. The investigation also uncovered illegal bear guiding activity.

The area also had a number of law abiding sportsmen as DNR conservation officers also revealed that many fishing and hunting guides in the area were following the law and protecting the resources.

If you violate the laws, remember, fishing and hunting is a privilege. A great tradition. Ignoring the laws of the land and abusing natural resources hurts everyone, upsets the delicate balance of nature, and displays poor sportsmanship.

No other information was available at this time.
