Wisconsin Chippewa want to spear 63,488 walleyes

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s six Chippewa tribes say they’re looking to spear a record number of walleyes across the northern part of the state this spring, a goal that could lead to tighter bag limits on non-tribal anglers and rekindle tensions with tourism-minded lawmakers.

The Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, which oversees the Chippewa’s off-reservation rights, forwarded the tribes’ 2014 goals to The Associated Press on Wednesday. The goals call for taking a record 63,488 walleyes, breaking the old record of 59,659 set in 2010.
