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.....?

      In the summer and fall the night bite is excellent on Cass for eyes.  I'm not much help come winter time though.  With the clearer water due to zebra mussels, I would bet the night bite would be good.

      When I discover it I will let you know. I have not figured it out yet.

      Depends on your layout. If the walls can be easily removed inside that is usually the better option. If too much stuff is in the way...then yep...do as Cliff suggests.

      Is there a special dance or ritual I can do in an attempt at pleasing said fish gods? Cuz my moves and dance skills just are not up to par this year! Lol.
