The latest report from our local Conservation Officer made me wonder, “Who did he encounter on the lake?” I know most of the youth in the area so I’m hoping they were tourists and whether they were or weren’t I hope they were given tickets.
CO Darin Fagerman (Grand Marais) encountered two young anglers who remembered to bring along beer which they weren’t old enough to have, and forgot things they needed like a fishing license and life jackets. One young man told the CO that his buddy told him to look out for CO Fagerman and when we didn’t see you, we opened our beers. Then you just showed up. They were in a small boat with no life jackets and enough beer to get intoxicated. They were escorted off the lake.
