Lac du Flambeau Band hosts treaty rights fishing tournament

Filed Under: Environment | Law
More on: fishing, lac du flambeau, treaties, wisconsin

The Lac du Flambeau Tribe of Wisconsin is hosting a "Honoring Our Treaty Rights" spearing tournament for its members.

Tribal members will be allowed to spear an unlimited number of muskies, according to news reports. A total of $6,500 in prizes will be awarded.

The tribe is exercising its off-reservation treaty rights. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wants a count on how many muskies are speared during the event, which it called unusual.

"Sustaining the fishery is our priority. We have worked closely with the tribe on management of the musky population and we will continue to do so,” Mike Staggs, DNR's fisheries bureau director, said in a press release.
