The future of Constance

Recommended Posts

I made it out today and into the night, and I must say the future for this small lake looks bright. My buddies and I caught a lot of fish, not much for size, but if it's a precurser for things to come, we should be seeing some nice fish come out of there. Another thing that struck me as odd was that we caught three bullhead at NIGHT. I thought bullhead went dormant during the winter and became somewhat dormant. Eyeguy12, right after you left, I went over to your holes and caught a decent crappie.

Good Fishing

I belive that lake has a reputation of small fish, or is moving in that direction which is bad. over fishing of the larger pannys has allowed the runts to spawn, which is not good. a good example is big and mitchell lakes, were full grown gills are only 6 inches. frown.gif

I understand what you mean, but we were catching big numbers of 4-6 inch crappies. Like the young of the year. Looks promising.

The spring bite in the little bay in the woods has been a slaughter the past couple of springs. I fish there quite a bit and see people keeping limit after limit. I've heard simmiler ice tales. The lake is too small for that kind of harvest. (I have too let everything I catch go) I heard the same thing happened in less than one winter on a small lake south of Constance two winters ago.

A little selective harvest could go a long way on lakes like these.

I agree. lots of little fish could mean stunting of growth and a lot of fighting for food.
