I see a lot of dead carp in those pictures. Is there anything else sportfish wise that died?

I don't know anything about the lake, but appears to be all carp from what i can tell. It probably costs a good deal to put in a aeration system and to maintain it. depending on the size of the club may not have the funds to do it. Also some of the lakes that do have one in are still dying off cause of all the snow cover we have had this year. Its hard to keep a shallow lake alive. Hard to see any lake die off during the winter. To me the best point is getting rid of all the carp and starting over with a fresh start of game fish. just my little oppinion

I think it was carp lake. Why not post the lake name? This has been happening for years on certain lakes. It is sad to see. Is this lake your hot spot for next year,

same question asked on other forum thread, what lake?

schoolgrove in sw mn. it is about 400 acres with a max of 11.6 feet. yes there were tiger muskies in there. my grandpa has a pic of one when hes standing on our dock. was a very very very very productive walleye, crappie and catfish lake if you hit it at the exact right time.

Are you a member of your local club? To me that would be the best place to start voicing your opinion. Looks like alot of carp to me too you would be surprised how fast a fishery can turn around after a winterkill.

It looks like School Grove. This lake had a large harvest of carp earlier in the winter. Could this be related to that event?

That's really too bad. Even though I rarely fish the lake, I hate to see this happen.

Thats a real bummer. Its terrible to see all of those fish die.

Maybe a positive side would be getting a fresh start without the carp. It seems to me like it might be a good time to load it up with rotenone (sp) and start over.

there was game fish in the hole before they opened it to liberlized fishing. i havent really seen anything other than a TON of walleye fry in one of the tile inlets lately. find out soon how bad it was, maby just maby. it was the carp being carp and swimming in great quanity to the inlet holes depeleting the O2 in that area. as i dropped an under water camera and didnt really see anything other than a few crappie and minnows laying aginst the ice in the 10 holes i dropeed it down.

Broken Line-

I was out there a few times early winter. Did they ever have an areator going?

I hope its not too bad, I thought that lake was going to be great this spring.

Pictures must be from the West side of lake, by the landing across from Somerfelds(public access side). Areator was always off the point straight accross. What a shame to see. The muskies were stocked in the early/mid 90's I beleive, to help rid all the bullheads. Back then it was just a bullhead hole and a occasional walleye.

Is the lake good for waterfowl? A lot of times the DNR won't issue and airator permit if a lot of waterfowl use the lake. It might be a good thing for the lake that all those roughfish died. For both water quality and the other fish in the lake.
