HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Blind Lake is located approximately 8 miles north of Aitkin. The lake is 370 acres and with a maximum depth of 17 feet, nearly all of lake is less than 15 feet deep. The lake is known to experience winterkill during severe winters with the last being a partial winterkill during the winter of 1995-96. Development is relatively light with only 4.6 homes/cabins per shoreline mile, most of which are located along the east side of the lake. One residence on north/west side of the lake was recently converted to a seasonal campground. Shallow water substrates consist primarily of sand, muck, and detritus, though areas of gravel, boulders, rubble, and silt are present as well. The aquatic plant community is relatively diverse with 36 species present and is integral to maintaining good water quality as well as maintaining healthy fish populations. Emergent plants such as bulrush are important for shoreline protection, maintaining water quality, and provide essential spawning habitat for bass and panfish species. Submerged plants provide food and cover needed by fish and other aquatic species.

The northern pike catch was above average when compared to similar lakes at 13.7/gill net in 2010. Past catches have ranged from 7 to 12.7/gill net with an average of 10.2/gill net. Average length and weight were 21.3" and 2.3 lbs with 26% measuring at least 24".

Yellow perch are an important forage species for northern pike and they were present in good numbers in 2010 with a catch rate of 37.9/gill net. This was the highest catch to date.

Bluegill were caught in average numbers at 15.6/trap net. Black crappies were also caught in average numbers at 11.1/gill net and 1.2/trap net. Size was respectable with 27% of bluegills measuring at least 7" and 25% of all crappies measuring at least 8".
