I was excited as well until I read article.

Looks like next year we will feel the pinch.

Anybody have any more details on why the low survey numbers??

We didn't do THAT good this year.

a friend of mine's father has a house on the north shore and he told me that the fish were just thick floating up there this summer. He said it was way worse than other years as far as what they had to pick up.

Lotsa dead fish from heat or CPR or what ever....

Judging by the lower catch rates this fall, i'm starting to believe the net surveys frown.gif

I hope the perch numbers are still good. I really don't care what I keep or throw back, I am there for the fun that is Mille Lacs in the winter.

The question is how a "boost" for local business this winter going to affect those same business' next spring and summer? I know a lot of them are hurting up there right now.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
