Duluth, MN (KDAL) - Next year when you’re out looking to catch a walleye in Minnesota waters, the stamp you purchase will showcase the work of a Cloquet man. The D-N-R says Stuart Nelson’s painting of a walleye chasing a spinner rig tipped with a minnow took top honors in their 2014 stamp contest. He was up against two other competitors at last month’s judging. Nelson is not a newcomer when it comes to D-N-R stamp designs. He won the same contest in 2011 as well as the 1999 and 2014 trout and salmon stamp contests. He says he was prompted to re-enter the trout and salmon competition by fans of his work after a 15-year hiatus. State lawmakers first created the five-dollar stamp in 2009. It's not required to legally catch walleye.
