Glad someone is getting them out there! I iced fished it a couple of times this winter and caught a cold that was about it? Which body of water were you fishing? There are a couple out there and I can't figure out which one has the fish?
Mav, we call it the Olson WPA, 1/2 m south of the blinking light, east of Sanborn. The state test netted Hobart for one night this spring, few keepers, but three good year classes coming up. I wonder if the cormorants could have hit them that hard. Although the water so green last summer it must be hard to see down there. Some days I counted over 300 cormorants on the lake.
Those birds are the reason a lot of the small lakes around Jamestown are losing their fish. With the increase of numbers in the fish , has also brought more of them! Unforunate but what can you do to a bird that pukes at you, if you get to close to it. Never really understood why they do that? But thanks maybe I'll run into some out there.
We duck hunt on it and saw a lot of cormorants there also. The game warden told the landowner that it had been stocked with perch and that they should be keepers by now. I just haven't made it out there to fish.
