Anyone having any luck for slabs out here. I remember a few years back, it was amazing the fish that was in the lake.

I haven't fished out there this year but i did last year a few times without much luck. It was a good lake a few years ago but it got fished very hard and a lot of fish were taken out of that lake. My personal opinion,,,,,,way overfished. I counted one day and the were almost 100 houses. most lakes it wouldnt be a real big deal but the lake isnt very big and when u see a guy(s) taking a limit of 8-9 inch fish home?????????? Not a whole lot else to say. Diamond and eagle lake have been producing but both have slowed way down. Hope this helps.

this is what i was thinking, that it did get fished out a few years back. there was times that you caught 100 slabs in a night, and was able to pick threw them

I think its still there and working. If I remember right the winter kill wasn't on the lake itself. There is a slough that is connected to swenson by a chanel when the water is high enough in the spring. The fish that migrated to that slough to spawn those springs never made it back to the main lake becasue of the dry summers. There sure were some nice sized fish that were dead the following springs in that slough. cry.gif

its been very dry out in that area for more than one season

A creek that runs thru our farm,from a large slough has been dry 3 years

A lot of minnows that would be food are not getting to Swenson

A couple of sloughs out there did have a major fish kill

Not to top it off it is fished out when fish size and numbers come up

A small lake with lots of local intense fishing when the fish are there and it emptys quickly

Having a aerator does'nt mean it won't winter kill.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
