Unfortunately, the fisherman are the minority in the community. If people want to make a difference, come to a fish club meeting the first thursday each month. I hear a lot of complaints from the peanut gallery, but that doesn't get us very far with issues such as weed coverage. According to the DNR we are at about 15% weeds. Seems when one or two members complains about their "hardship" getting their boats from their shorelines to a "safe" zone away from all the weeds (which is about 6 feet from shore), the alarm bell sounds and the weeds are eliminated. The other problem is the lack of natural shorelines with trees and such. The trend seems to be concrete or steel sea walls and the fertilizer just runs right in the lake. A commitee is actually preparing a sea wall guide to "help" folks plan a better sea wall. The trend for the fishing habitat is not a good one, unfortunately, and that shows with the lesser size and lack of forage. Also, a big problem with carp. I would like to see it be illegal to release carp. We plan on having a better carp tournament this year also. We need volunteers and people to get involved. Everyone that fishes is welcome, whether a member or guest. No cost or obligations.
