Commercial Fishing Meeting. Tribal commercial fishing representatives are meeting with the Manistee area
group that last year was formed to facilitate information sharing on the net fishing activities. The meeting this
week will discuss plans and ways of communication with the sport and charter fishing community to avoid
problems this summer.

It's a shame that these hand full of non tribal members that have an issue with native rights spoil it for what used to be a great town.They need to realize that if you took our fishing rights away the thousands and thousands of civilized people that enjoy the taste of fresh fish that is provided by tribal members would be gone. Who do you think supplies all the restraunts, hotels, stores, in this area and more?
Think about it, really.

Can you tell me how much fish the Little River fishermen have contributed?

Have they ever left the port and not sunk a boat?

It's kind of hard to fish when you have to close one eye to keep from seeing double.

Phil, your telling me that a non native never sunk a boat in these waters?? Think really hard. And I'm sure it's just as hard for the tribal fisherman to earn a living when they have sportsfisherman that can't see huge orange bouys sticking straight up out of the water. It's a pretty big lake out there in case you have not seen. Hundreds of other real sportsman can navigate around them. Ooops, I forgot your not in that class.

i find it quite interesting that the indians are so quick to abuse the resources in general. treaty or no treaty, when did their grandfathers/grandfathers ever use a motorized tank and modern materials to set and pick up nets. last i researched they did it with canoes, and hand stitched their own nets from organic materials. i am no bully by any means, and marking nets, they do an alright job, but rogue nets, they fail, but as far as i am concerned, if you want respect and to be treated like equals than save face and fish like your elders did, with canoes. until than, respect cannot be earned from fellow sport fisherman. i hunt with a homemade bow and arrow, does this mean that i am more indian than they are, or should i invent a tommy bow, and reap the land cause the white man $#@%ed my grandfathers/grandfathers, water without fish, land without animals, michigan without b.s. indians, no loss when one drops off of this picture, so will the others. last time i checked, the indians alive now have had the same freedom i have had for the past 68 years. so fish with canoes if you are still hurt since the white man gave you freedom, or $%#@in ride the goverment for all its worth. eventually things will work themselves out, look how good the economy has worked itself out after the recession we just had. lol

When done right its not going to hurt anything. The sport fishers need to stop cutting the markers and dragging the nets around, all this does is distroy the waters because the fisherman can not find them. As for calling us Indians, we are called that because a DRUNK white man ran his boat into the wrong country!!!! If its marked go around it!!!
WOW
