Minnesota DNR Special Investigator Steve McFasland has won state recognition for his work in stopping the unlawful harvesting of walleye by Minnesota eagles from lake Mille Lacs. Since this spring’s surprise announcement from the DNR, it is illegal to catch and keep a walleye fish.
“Special Agent McFasland has been instrumental in stopping over a dozen eagles this past week alone!”, says Special Agent in Charge, Jephery Logan. “He really knows how to find them and arrest them with the fish in hand, so-to-speak!”
Agent McFasland got a monetary award and a plaque from Governor Mark Dayton during the governor’s annual walleye dinner.
