[DNR] Fishery studies to be done at Sullivan Lake
Start Date: 4/1/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/1/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Event Description
An angler creel survey will be conducted by the DNR at Sullivan Lake starting the week of April 8, kicking off a series of 2013 studies on the fishery.

During the creel survey, DNR fisheries representatives will count and interview anglers at Sullivan Lake, and count and measure their harvested fish through October.

The creel survey will monitor what fish the anglers are targeting, how many they are catching, and how many fishing trips are completed during the year.

An electrofishing survey for largemouth bass will be conducted in April to study the bass population. Data collected will be used to determine bass mortality, growth and overall fish condition in the lake.

A general fish community survey will be conducted in May. All fish will be collected using electrofishing, gill nets and trap nets.

In October, an electrofishing survey for stocked hybrid walleye (saugeye) will be conducted.

The targeted samplings for bass and hybrid walleye will give biologists an assessment of fish community and help them determine how the individual species relate to each other in Sullivan Lake.
