I see in sundays paper that they are going to kill off everything in the lake. Stock them kill them. I guess I am confused.gif

It's called rehabilitation:) too many unwanted species get into a stocked trout lake, kill it off and start over with a clean slate. It seems excessive, but catching 3 inch perch when you're angling for brookies isn't much fun...

Surface Tension

Every Designated Trout lake we have have has been "Reclaimed" by killing off the unwanted fish. I has to be that way in order for the trout to have a chance. I don't think it kills the bug life though and I'll give you a tip. A few years after the new stocking the lakes are on fire. Trout grow fast when introduced into a lake full of insect life that up till then had a chance to multiply without predation from fish.

I'll have to read the article, sometimes before they reclaim a lake they open it up to promiscuous fishing.

fishing 9/1 to 9/23 you may use miltiple lines, but not seines or other nets. Fish maybe taken in any quanity and rough fish may be sold. You MUST have a licenses.The browns used to be good in there but faded down in population. Rainbows not bad.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
