Boundary Creek Pond in Champlin

3 posts in this topic

I was just down at the pond in Boundary Creek in Champlin and I noticed a ton of bullheads floating around, but I also noticed there were some really nice crappies floating, 12" +. I found out the lake winterkills every year, and i was just wondering how craps can get that big in just a year?

Even during a severe winterkill some fish will survive. Crappies are supposedly able to endure winterkills better than other fish such as sunfish, perch, or bullheads.

i've also heard that norton's do very well on winterkill from d.n.r...pond on friend's property was well filled with them...last three years none of the big ones he was catching have shown up on shore in spring...do they sink and rot or are they still out there?none have been caught in a couple years..was great three years ago.....?

      Navionics also provides a computer based by region lake map U.S and Canada region with 1ft. contours at no cost. Like Gps Nautical Charts USA you can also purchase a version for your smart phone / tablet under $10 vs. $15 for Nautical Charts. Navionics offers SonarChart Live which give the users an opportunity to upload recorded contours to Navionics to update the Navionics maps which can be downloaded at any time providing constant updating to accurate lake contours. http://webapp.navionics.com/#boating@11&key=kz__HrgubQ

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
