Same thing was in the paper years back, on the north side of lake nipissing,
But it was whole fish, whatever was caught in gill-nets that wasn't walleye. 'Scraps' that couldn't be sold I guess, piled up just off the highway.

It is always the same thing.... <1% gives the >99% a bad name. Truly disgusting.
Nature has so much to offer us, then you read about these idiots. What a let-down.

The point is that there were over 100 walleye slottered in that mess! Unless there were 25-ish lawful fishermen involved..

Up until University age, I lived in the North between the Soo, Elliot lake, Cochrane, and Red Rock/Nipigon. I could tell more stories like this than most of you would ever believe....walk into the bush to a few places on the opener and find hundreds of pickerel and whitefish rotting on the ground, or hanging on branches. Huge waste. Sad, disgraceful, disgusting. Has happened to me many times.

Did I mention that those experiences were on the Opener on many occasions...

Good for you for calling it in. All you can really do in that situation.

Most likely from Native about 4 to 5 years ago they caught few of them that had a cooler filled with fillets from walleye they used a net going across a snowmobile bridge crossing river in Muskoka just in the spring when they were going up to spawn .If I remember correctly was headed for restaurant market for the city.

Usually not hard to see if it's from a native subsistence harvest and the skins and heads left behind . Gill nets leave telltale signs especially on heads or skins as do spear slams .
