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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
