July 09, 2017 10:46 AM

Gov. Mark Dayton has canceled a meeting with business owners near Mille Lacs Lake after he was greeted by protesters who oppose how the state manages the lake's struggling walleye population.

The Star Tribune reports Dayton was with a small group fishing for bass as an alternative to walleyes on Mille Lacs Saturday when about 75 protesters in boats encircled him to protest a temporary ban on walleye fishing.
