Ina Lake is a relatively small northern pike - centrarchid lake located adjacent to Lake Christina. There is no public access, thus management activities have been limited. The lake was last surveyedin 1988. Lakeshore residents have noticed a decline in water clarity, aquatic vegetation coverage, andgamefish populations over the past decade. Northern pike catches averaged 9.3 fish/gillnet in 1997. Gillnet catches have been variable in pastsurveys, averaging 0.3, 16.3, and 3.5 fish/net in 1988, 1983, and 1973, respectively. The normal rangeof mean catch rates for similar lakes is 3.5 - 10.5 fish/gillnet. Fish captured in gillnets rangedfrom 9.6 to 36.4 inches in total length, however 60% were less than 14.0 inches. Mean weight of fishcaptured was 1.4 pounds. Numerous small northern pike were also captured in trapnets. These smallfish are cohorts of the 1995 year class (age-2). Bluegill are abundant. Trapnet catches averaged 59.5fish/net. Trapnet catches have ranged from 25.5 to 172.0 fish/net in previous surveys. Most of thefish captured were between 6.0 and 8.0 inches in total length. Eighty percent of the fish captured intrapnets were age-6 or greater. Black crappie catches averaged 4.5 fish/trapnet. Trapnet catches havebeen consistent in past surveys, ranging from 3.1 to 4.5 fish/net. Mean weight of fish captured was0.5 pounds. Yellow perch catches averaged 5.7 fish/gillnet which is within the normal range of meancatch rates for similar lakes (3.4 - 43.6 fish/gillnet). Gillnet catches averaged 0.3, 6.3,and 5.8fish/net in 1988, 1983, and 1973, respectively. Mean weight of fish captured in 1997 was 0.1 pounds. Black bullhead and yellow bullhead catches averaged 22.0 and 11.3 fish/trapnet, respectively. Surprisingly, gillnet catches were less than 1.0 fish/net.
