The Marine Patrol looks to our association for its continued support. In the past we have provided them with the supplies and gear they need that they request. Some of the things they now have because of your generous donations are ladders, tactical life jackets and other vital tactical gear. The Marine Patrol is very grateful for your continued support.

The association has been stocking walleye in the chain since 2017 and perch since 2020 upon recommendations from the DNR biologist that issues the stocking permits. Last year in the spring we put perch in Archer Lake and Long Lake. In the fall we put walleye in Archer Lake and Long Lake. This year in the spring we put perch in Marble Lake and Mud Lake. This fall we plan to put walleye in Marble Lake and Mud Lake. Please donate to the fish stocking program to help maintain a successful operation.
