I recently bought a house on the lake and have been fishing it only for the past year or so.  It seems like an odd fishery to me.  From what I've seen on the electronics and from what I've caught, Redstone seems to have a healthy forage base, and a ton of Crappies that move around.  There are some carp, bass, walleye, northern, perch, bluegil, muskie, and catfish, but I haven't found any consistent patterns to them.  It looks almost random where I've caught them.  Also looks like the lake gets a lot of fishing pressure, and a lot of fish are taken out.  I'd love to see the results of the latest survey they are doing to see what kind of numbers and sizes they get.

I agree, introducing a new predator is probably a bad idea.

Not sure if it is a silo.  I saw something circular (could be a silo) with what looked to be the remains of a foundation around it.  I was guessing an old farm.  Saw it on my sidefinder.  I didn't mark any fish around it, but fished it for a while anyway and didn't catch anything.  I have it stored on my depthfinder, but my boat is already in storage.  All I can remember it was in the main body of the lake due south of the big new house where the lake forks left and right.  Sorry, probably not much help.

Please don't they will take over an already fragile ecosystem.  This lake used to be well managed and had a good species diversity and population structure, now not so much.  Adding a very aggressive sight feeder to the mix will be impact the remaining species negatively.

My $0.02.

Would love it if the DNR would consider sticking stripers in Redstone.  Great game fish, fun to catch and they reproduce naturally very well.

Does anyone know who to contact about discussing this idea to make it a reality?

I took Josh and Jim out Friday and we hooked this one on a Musky Madness spinner. It's the only one we encountered. But that's one in the boat. I spent the rest of my weekend taking people out on Castle Rock and the Wisconsin River. We got fish there as well. If anybody is interested in a trip get a hold of me 608-415-1231

Walley Master, you weren't on the North End launch, you were at the west end launch...the North End Launch is nice if you ignore that someone defecated in the urinal who knows how long ago and is still there, the ramp is so steep one can hardly load a boat....as far as section 11, there is a staging place, stop about 3/4's of the way down, get ready and go down, same with coming out....except you will be behind the other "fisherman" that drive around you and do what you said, get the boat ready at the launch...glad you at least caught some "medium" crappies, guess that means 8-9 inchers...
