Lake Study

Postby gtk » Tue Jul 17, 2007 11:12 am

The guys from mdwfp.com called today, and they are coming out to do an analysis and make suggestions for our lake.

For the last couple years, the bass have not been growing, and the bream are decreasing in size.

This is a free service offered by the department, that I just found out about earlier in the year.. Thats a pretty sweet deal if you ask me :)

I didn't realize mdwfp offered a service like that. The guy I hunt with paid a pond management company to come out and do the same thing. Definitely a sweet deal ! :D

Well.... Our lake is bass crowded, and nutrient pooooor... Basically, they are starving, expending more energy catching small bream then they receive..

So, they said we need to lime & fertilize, & feed. Keep any/all bass, and remove some catfish too :)

The guys from mdwfp are two super nice fellas, Keith Meals and Aurthur Dunn. I enjoyed meeting & talking to them.

I took some pics & will post later.

We wanted them to leave the boat there with the "Shock" setup for a few days....

We could've fixed the over-crowding.

We have a fishing rodeo every year for the church. Its a requirement that all fish are kept & disposed of by whatever means.

I was surprised that he told me to not really worry about the bream, but just get the bass numbers down. He said bream have a natural mortality rate of about 3-4 years.

"WE" could build something.
"You" can test it...


I'm not going to stand in an Aluminum boat with a generator and live wires draping in the water and not know if it's set up right or not.

For all that it matters, just shot the powerlines in half and let them fall "Live" in the water..... :shock:
