Stamp sale proceeds support a $3 million a year effort to stock walleye into about 1,000 lakes that cover 1 mil- lion acres. "When you purchase a stamp, your voluntary contribution flows into a dedicated account for walleye stock- ing," said c.B. Bylander, outreach sec- tion chief for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). "The account is used to sup- port the state's rearing and transporta- tion of walleye and the purchase of walleye from certified private produc- ers." Legendary walleye angler A1 Lind- ner is helping the DNR promote the 2010 walleye stamp, reminding an- glers, "I got mine. Get yours today!" A walleye stamp validation costs $5. For $2 more, the DNR will mail the actual stamp to your door as a collec- tor's item. This year's stamp was cre- ated by artist Tim Turenne of Richfield, who painted a pair of wall- eye, one of which is chasing a jointed crankbait. A walleye stamp is not re- quired to fish for or keep walleye. "It's never too late to snag a walleye stamp," Bylander said. "They are available year-round and can be pur- chased days, weeks or even months after you've bought your fishing li- cense."
