Monday, February 15, 2016 1:35:02 p.m.
The Department of Natural Resources Bureau of Law Enforcement is asking for the public's help in solving a case of property damage and interfering with lawful fishing/harassment. Sometime after close of sturgeon spearing (1 p.m.) on Sat., February 13, and opening of spearing (7 a.m.) on Sun. February 14, an individual had his spearing shack completely plowed in by snow. The amount of snow prevented the individual from being able to spear out of that shanty. Later, it was found that the sides of the shanty were pushed in and damaged, making the shack unusable. This incident occurred on the north end of Lake Poygan near Alder Creek in Winnebago County.
