Millions and millions of walleye

NEW LONDON -- It takes millions and millions of walleye to improve your odds of landing one.

It also requires a lot of hard work by the staff with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to nudge Mother Nature along and stock all of those walleye in the state's lakes.

Minnesota operates the country's largest walleye stocking program, and some of that work takes place here.
