Salmon and trout stocking.

Recommended Posts

These are photos I took out of Michigan out door news.

 

The dnr says they want long salmon to stay because they are the ones that keep the alewife in check. But they are still planting over 1,000,000 lake trout as a "secondary fishery". That's bull. They need to plant less lake trout.

Plus the article said they won't be planting as many king salmon in the northern part of the lake where I fish because they are having better natural reproduction than in the south. And that bull. I caught 4 salmon all summer out of charlevoix. But you could fill your cooler with lake trout. I hate lake trout. Plus we are catching Cisco with stomachs full of alewives.20180216_114026.jpg20180216_114006.jpg

Yes i agree its bull . But here are some non dnr issues. The feds plant the lake trout not the dnr. They do it because of the tribal consent decree and a so called effort to return the lakes to a natural state. Here in the tc area it is totally the tribe planting and trying to maintain the Cisco's.

I agree we need less lakers and more kings, but at this point, as long as they’re stocking fish, and not cutting stocking all together, I’m just gonna fish for what’s biting. Most of the people that are charter fishing are just there to fight the biggest fish they’ve ever fought. I’ve seen dinosaur lake trout put bigger smiles on faces than 2 year old kings.

I talked to a for biologist the other day about the Cisco's.  He said they haven't planted any yet. But it is in the works. They already have them at the Jordan river hatchery and the tribe has some.

  So all the Cisco's now in grand traverse bay all the way to and including little traverse bay are all natural fish.
