Green Lake Muskie (Kandiyohi County)

3 posts in this topic

GreenMusky.jpg

This is a Muskie I caught out of Green Lake a few years back in front of the Old Mill Inn. The DNR creel survey guy told me he knew of 7 muskies caught on Green that summer including a 47 incher. Later in the fall my buddy caught a 39 incher at the Old Mill Inn also. They are reproducing in the lake naturally but stocking would help make a fishable population. Sign the petition going around for a public forum on Green Lake Muskie Stocking.

Thanks for photo

As some of you know we are trying to enhance Muskie population by attempting to get further stocking of Nest and Green Lakes in Kandiyohi county.

This species found its way to lakes by swimming a couple of miles thru river from hatchery.That hatchery is now raising different species so its doubtfull we will see any more Muskies coming in.

The neat thing is that the ones that got here are showing signs of reproduction.Also some of the original escapies are being caught.

But lets face it the original fish are about at the end of their life expectincy.We dont know how many of the new year classes from reproduction here we will be seeing.

We need to act now as with the DNR acting to add some lakes in Minnesota we think that 2 lakes showing they are totaly capapble of growing these fish are perfect candidates for expansion.

Please start a petition to show your concern and get that off to us during the next few weeks and if we get enough fishermen that show an interest we will work to push our dream of a west central Minnesota lake with Musky in it.

Print off a petiton from site here

thanks

TTT

this is a picture of one of the natural reproduction Musky caught here in Green

Trying to get more pictures and videos to make a point that these fish do like it here and want more of their kind

there is a petition on here to print off,pleses print one and get some of your fishing buddys to sign it

we are several months away from public meeting where persons that are for stocking can voice and show reasons why we should enhance a Musky population here.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
