From the DNR 1993

The current fish population is dominated by black bullhead, carp, bluegill, and green sunfish. The bluegill population in Diamond lake is average compared to other lakes of the same classification. Their weight is considered slightly less than average. Over half of the bluegills measured were between 4 and 5.5 inches in length. Black bullheads were sampled in average numbers, and their weight was low. The population of green sunfish was slightly above average, as was their mean weight. Only one black crappie was captured during the survey. Hybrid sunfish and pumpkinseed sunfish were captured in low numbers. They were also found to have mean weights lighter than the average. Carp were sampled in relatively high numbers, and had a large mean weight of 2.6 pounds. Golden shiners were of average abundance and average weight.

1993? Most fish have lived there lifespan and died since then. I fished there 3 times last year b/c its close. pulled 2 eyes out one trip got skunked the other two times. I drove by there twice this week on my way to buffalo and only saw 3 people out there between the 4 times I passed the lake. They are pretty few and far between I would think. Last year there were always 20 vehicles showing up just before dark.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
