Last week on this page former DNR fisheries biologist Dick Sternberg offered his take on the Lake Mille Lacs fishery and what's needed to restore its walleyes.

DNR officials declined, saying their position is explained on the agency's website ( millelacslake/index.html). A spokeswoman for GLIFWC said the bands are considering a response.
