Split Rock Reservoir winterkill?

4 posts in this topic

I heard that it winterkilled. Has anyone been there recently? That would really be too bad if that little lake froze out because it was one of few lakes in that area, and was a great lake to catch some crappie and the occasional nice walleye. Every year that I can remember it has had an aerator on it, but from what I heard(and you know how that goes) the park ranger didn't "get around to arranging it this year"

They reported on the KLOH fishing report a couple of weeks ago that it was deader than snot. That is too bad.

If you got to pipestonestar.com there is a story about it from Feb 20.

I read the article on pipestonestar.com.

It sounds like some weak and flimsy excuses from Park management.

Next year they want voluteers to do the O2 monitoring and watch the aereator? What were they doing all winter? It hasn't snowed in two months.

Sounds like the advisory board has some work to do.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
