The Minnesota DNR has undertaken a study on Mille Lacs to estimate its smallmouth bass population. As part of the study, which included this 21.5-inch fish held by James Gerads, an intern with the DNR, biologists captured and tagged 2,100 smallmouth bass between 12 and 22 inches in length. The tagged fish have two yellow tags.
