THERE IS A NICE POPULATION OF NORTHERN PIKE. WE COULD NOT SET THE GILLNET SO WE COULDN'T COMPARE IT TO THE STATE AND LOCAL MEDIANS, BUT THERE WERE ONLY NICE SIZE FISH IN OUR NETS. THE BLUEGILLS AND CRAPPIES WERE HIGH IN NUMBERS BUT VERY SMALL. A FEW NICE SIZE CRAPPIES WERE CAUGHT. NICE SIZE BASS WERE REPORTED TO BE CAUGHT BY LOCAL ANGLERS.

Recreational activities such as recreational boating, angling, waterfowl hunting, and diving may spread aquatic invasive species. Some aquatic invasive species can attach to boats, while others can become tangled on propellers, anchor lines, or boat trailers. Many species can survive in bilge water, ballast tanks, and motors or may hide in dirt or sand that clings to nets, buckets, anchors, and waders. Fortunately, completing simple steps can prevent the transport of aquatic invasive species.
