Korsgaden's presentation will be on Minnesota's state fish, the walleye. He'll be discussing socially what has changed with today's anglers, the future and what the citizens walleye work group has been working and focusing on. This includes slot limits, bag limits, stocking and impacts special interest groups have on management for the state's walleye fishery.
