To think that I come on here just to get a fishing report. Now I get a science and English education too. Who would of thought.
Turtle Lake, Walworth County

And another expert speaks lol
To the know it all, you're not trying to control "evasive" species, you're trying to control "invasive" species. If you're going to talk like you know everything, you should at least know something.
Turtle has Zebras and milfoil I wonder what the condition will be this year.Time passes fast so does the growth when nothing has been done for years to control evasive species.
There are nice fish in here,perch included. Just got to know the "tactics".
I agree there are too many small perch,,used to be nice ones in the north east corner early in the morning.According to Inn Fisherman they still need perch to make jumps in size and growth,I have caught nothing over 14lbs. in the Turtle,hot summer Jitterbug was the bait. Funning thing one hot summer day I caught three pike 8,10,and12 lbs. each in a different corner of the lake all on the same bait Purple spinner bait, all are swimming.Haven't. repeated since. I do not fish for pike!
Pike are opportunistic. Not too often are they picky eaters...The perch pose a threat to themselves out here. To many of them in my opinion.
All I’m gonna say is unless I take fillet knife to a perch there is no way I’d try and swallow one!!! Them bastards flare up and are out for blood!!
JB. I believe you hit the nail on the head! CARPIO
It’s very true that pike in SE WI have a very wide variety of food sources. Everything mentioned previously, plus I have even found a turtle in one pikes stomach and a baby muskrat in the throat of a big pike that hit my lure anyway. It was released. So perhaps perch aren’t quite the big percentage of forage for pike here, as they are in Canada
