Reader Opinion: Kudos on muskies in Gull

Reader Opinion: No muskies in Gull Lake
More government intervention in the natural state of our lakes. It is absolutely unthinkable for the DNR to introduce muskies into the Gull Lake Chain. This is complete catering to big city fisherman. The lake is in fine shape now and an excellent natural walleye fishery.
