Lakes Of Ten Acres Or Less

Recommended Posts

I understand about the stocking,aeration,
and management part needing public access.
But isn't nearly the entire shoreline open
to the public enough?? Make it a carry-in,
but nooooo, they put in this nice ramp,
that virtually assures a damaging impact since the fish have no where to hide.Sure its
great to be able to drive right up there and
dump off the boat.The lake is so small,they
have it at electric motors only.But already
this year, I see the big boats cruising around.If anything,put out a fishing pier
and leave it as it once was,(a carry-in).
I'd bet my last dollar,that the decent
fishing we once had on this tiny lake will
be on its way out.Either that,or they will
end up stocking it all the time to keep
any fish in there.They would've been better
off doing some habitat recovery like dredging
out the creekbed or something.

A small lake nearby, has recently received
heavy pressure because of recent developements,including a new access ramp.
There was/is plenty of shoreline to fish
from, or launch a small boat or canoe.After seeing all the pressure on this small body
of water, my question is what has the DNR
done to protect this lake's resources??
Would putting a limit of say 1/2 the
normal daily possesion help out these
small lakes.I think the DNR has done damage
to this particular lake.It is only about
six acres in size,and judging from what I've seen so far,the impact will be huge upon so
small a lake.

Tumble, I'm not sure but I thought I heard once that a lake needed to have a public access if it were to qualify for DNR management such as stocking and aeration if needed. I do agree with you about that small of lake getting hurt in a hurry if the pressure is too great.

Are you sure the DNR put in the ramp and not the county or city or possibly some other group, like the developer. I think if you check you'll find that the DNR doesn't recognize anything less than 10 acres as a lake. At least that's what I think. I have been wrong before so it could be I am again.

The lake is 6 acres??? I would kiss that goodbye as a fishery. There's not alot of area to support any number of fish. People will be getting skunked soon, if not already. It's probably already too late to prevent any damage...Planning for the future would be in the forecast, however it sounds like consideration has already been ignored for the fish and their habitat.

6 acres can't support a very many fish and and there forage. It's sad to hear that this has happened, but thats the way it goes.

I live on a lake north of Bemidji. It is a shallow lake and you have to know how to fish it. They put in a public access and now all those 90 hp+ jobs are tearing up the bottom. They hit those shallow bars and you can actually hear it change tones when the reeds and grass are being tore up. Then for the rest of the summer you are bringing up dump when you try casting or trolling. I asked the DNR about a horsepower restriction and was told it was too hard to get it passed. The small resort on the lake always advised against big engines at his ramp. Have seen a big change. Sure wish those folks would wise up.

I fish on two very small lakes/ponds... they are maybe 10 acres each, but not more. They're connected with a nice channel, and receive very light fishing pressure. Thankfully, I don't believe the DNR or any other group plans on putting a access here, there is however area for you to carry on a small boat. It's an incredible bass fishery, yielding 5+ pounders often. Bottomline, if you have spots like these, keep them quiet. Only tell people you can trust.

As always, Good Luck!!!

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
