To the criers who don't like information posted on this specific lake because it doesn't tell them where to fish, get over it and quit reading. These reports are not only for "FISHING REPORTS" hence the button to click your post isn't an actual fishing report.
Fishin: where did you see the research that showed 500 largemouth bass only had 1 walleye combined which was predated upon? I find that interesting because I know of no such research conducted on a lake which was once known for good walleye numbers. The study by Stevens Point clearly showed that in a lake stocked for walleye, largemouth bass consume every stocked yearling fingerling and fry in a given lake. If such research does actually exist, I am interested to know if the lake studied had any semblance of a prior healthy walleye population. If the lake had one walleye, bass consumed 100% of the walleye.
Bass have been shown to predate on small walleye to an incredible degree in certain lakes. In fact, it has been shown it may be impossible to manage for both largemouth and walleye in the same lake because of it.
I also see that you and others believe that tons of walleye are available in the lake due to your camera pictures, and these people blame anglers lack of skill and failures to catch them. Well, population studies have shown a decrease of at least 50% of walleyes in the lake since 1994. Believe what you want, but when the walleyes aren't there it generally makes it more difficult to catch them.
Current research generally points to an increase in LM bass populations negatively affecting walleye populations. The real question is why so many more largemouth reproduced in the lake. Warm periods during the 90's and 00's, size limit implementation of bass, CPR push of bass, etc. I believe fishing pressure in the summer has greatly decreased for walleye. Opening day fishermen are a fraction of what they once were, and almost every resort on the lake is now sold as condos.
