Here's what happens when there is no ice in Indiana:16suspect Us Hoosiers have to go to Minnesota and raise heck with the fishin. Too bad these guys have to give us such a bad rep. I found this on the iceshanty.com > MN DNR Home > News > News Releases Another group of Indiana anglers find trouble in Minnesota (2005-12-27) Conservation officers caught three anglers with an overlimit of crappies.. For the third time this year, a group of Indiana anglers have been caught in Minnesota with too many fish. State Conservation Officer Brent Speldrich of McGregor received a recent Turn In Poacher (TIP) call indicating three anglers had taken an over-limit of fish from Lake Minnewawa and Rat Lake, each located about 60 miles west of Duluth. Speldrich interviewed the men at the residence they were renting. "When I asked them if they had taken any fish they said that they had caught some crappie and northern," Speldrich said. "There was a pause when I asked them how many they had." Despite saying they had read Minnesota's 2005 Fishing Regulations handbook, a search of the garage and a freezer inside the residence found the group in possession of 91 crappie and 10 northern pike. That is 61 crappie over the limit and one northern over the limit. Minnesota's daily/possession limit is 10 crappie. The northern pike daily/possession limit is three, with no more than one over 30 inches taken each day. Dan W. Londeree, 57, Brent A. Londeree, 35, and Robert D. Manley, 40, all of Columbus, Ind., face possible fines and restitution totaling about $6,300. A TIP call in April led to fine and restitution amounts totaling nearly $8,000 for five men from Fort Wayne, Ind. who were 299 fish over the limit of sunfish after fishing Straight Lake near Osage in northwestern Minnesota. Also seized in that investigation were angling licenses, fishing rods and an auger. In a June incident, six men from Indiana were fined nearly $5,200 after fishing Lake Winnibigoshish in northeastern Minnesota. The group had 128 walleyes, or 92 over the legal limit for six anglers. The walleye daily and possession limit is six walleye per angler. The group was also in possession of an illegal snapping turtle and illegally stored frozen northern pike and crappie fillets. "We love to have people come and fish Minnesota," said the DNR's chief conservation officer, Col. Mike Hamm. "They've got to obey the rules and regulations." Established in 1981, the TIP program allows Minnesotans to call a toll-free number from anywhere in the state to report natural resource violations. Calls regarding violations can be placed anonymously at 1-800-652-9093. Cash rewards are given for tips.
