I spoke with Dave Seibel, the DNR fisheries specialist, about the presence this Spring of DNR personnel and fish nets, etc.  For 11 days they were conducting the first year of a 2-year Musky population survey.  They will be back at ice out time next year, 2019, to complete that, as well as do a comprehensive survey of all fish.
Only the musky were measured this year, with a total of 21 caught.  The largest was 46 inches, weighing 21 pounds!
Informally, Dave was willing to share some findings about other fish.  He said they saw some nice Crappies, and that the Bluegill and Pumpkinseed were not too bad either.  They caught 4-5 Walleye per day, which he described as not real many, but nice big ones.
Great overall news is that fish are finally traveling freely between Bass and Summit Lake, which he described as working well.  When nature is allowed to take its course it is a good thing.

So it seems their are still a lot of Muskies out there

Our congratulations to the Happy Couple who enjoyed a beautiful day for their vows
