History & Status of the Fishery
Boot Lake is located in northeastern Becker County, six miles northwest of the town of Two Inlets. Boot Lake is a narrow, deep-water lake with a surface area of 348 acres and a maximum depth of 109 feet. There is a state-owned public access located on the north shore of the lake. Boot Lake is best known for its walleye population, but it also provides angling for northern pike, largemouth bass, and panfish. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has classified Minnesotas lakes into 43 different types based on physical, chemical, and other characteristics. Boot Lake is in lake class 23. Other area lakes in this same classification include: Big Bass, Benedict, Blue, East Crooked, Spearhead, and Tripp. Walleye abundance in 2006 was the highest recorded for all surveys on Boot Lake and above the current management goal. Walleye abundance in recent surveys has generally fluctuated around the management goal. Sampled walleye had an average length and weight of 16.3 inches and 1.7 pounds with fish measured up to 27.0 inches. Boot Lake is currently involved in a research study to evaluate various sizes and rates of walleye stocking. Future walleye stocking in Boot Lake will be based on recommendations from this research project. Yellow perch, an important forage species for walleye, were sampled at their highest abundance, within the range "typical" for this lake class. Perch abundance in past surveys has been at low levels, generally below or the low end of the range "typical" for this lake class. Higher perch abundance in 2006 may be responsible for better survival and higher abundance of walleye. Yellow perch are generally not an acceptable size for angling in Boot. Northern pike abundance was within the range "typical" for this lake class, and similar to past surveys. Small, "hammer handle" pike with an average length and weight of 18.0 inches and 1.3 pounds dominated the northern pike sample. The northern pike population in Boot Lake is limited by high reproduction and recruitment of young pike and very slow growth rates. Past surveys have sampled very few larger pike, and reports from anglers have been limited. Boot Lake is not really known as a bass - panfish lake because of its limited shallow water habitat and productivity. However, Boot does support moderate numbers of bluegill and largemouth bass, and low numbers of black crappie. Sampled bluegills were small in size, with an average length of 4.5 inches and low numbers of fish sampled over 7.0 inches. Bluegill growth rates are very slow in Boot Lake. Black Crappie were not sampled in 2006, but have been sampled in past surveys in low to moderate numbers. Past surveys have shown the black crappie to be an acceptable size for angling. Largemouth bass have been sampled in low to moderate numbers in surveys on Boot. Other species sampled included abundant numbers of yellow bullhead and moderate numbers of rock bass. White sucker and hybrid sunfish were sampled in low numbers.
