Workers for southwest Minnesota commercial fisherman Scott DesLaurier sort through fish captured in gill nets on the west basin of Lake Ocheda last week. DesLaurier said Thursday he completed two hauls on the south end of the west basin. His crew has now packed up to work on West Graham Lake before the lake freezes over. He hopes to return to Lake Ocheda this winter to remove some of the buffalo and rough fish from the lake. Julie Buntjer/Daily Globe
