Walleye Harvesters on Mille Lacs Encouraged to Use Landing Declaration Form


Mille Lacs Band walleye harvesters are encouraged to use a new landing declaration form during the 2020 walleye harvest on Mille Lacs Lake.

You can declare a landing Monday – Friday by noon. For holidays that land on a Friday, you must declare on Thursday for Friday or weekend harvesting. For holidays that land on a Monday, you must declare on Friday if you want to harvest on Monday:

Once you declare a landing for netting: During harvesting season there will be DNR staff member from 5:30-7:30pm to distribute permits. You must pick up your permits within that time. Make sure you have your tribal ID handy. Spearing permits will be issued (same as previous years) at declared landings beginning at 8 p.m.

IF you need to cancel, it is your responsibility to contact any of the DNR Conservation Officers as soon as you are aware. Continued “no shows” to landings could hinder permits issued to you.
