Our Bluegill Fishing in the
U.P. is not as great as
it was a few years back and the main reason is
over harvesting. The adult populations in most
lakes will support a harvest of about 20 Bluegills
per acre, and this is if the whole lake will
support Bluegills not just certain areas as in a
lot of the lakes here in the U.P.
Todays educated fishermen using modern electronics
can easily fish a lake out in one year.
A lot of fishermen are also
keeping the 10 inch plus fish which are the
spawners of quality size Bluegills.
here are some facts about Bluegills which are coming to light from
individuals who have been involved in Bluegill research.
there are sufficient numbers of large males they will
keep the smaller males from spawning. Fact Once a male Bluegill
spawns he will stop growing. So if he spawns with regular females
their off spring will not be the decent size fish like the offspring
of females that have spawned with a 10 inch plus male.
Big fish produce big fish.
as our lakes up here are a lot cooler in temperatures than the
lakes furthur south. We do not have the growing season or temperatures
that create spawning conditions that can substain a big harvest of these
delicious fish. In the last few years it has taken a lot more effort to
catch a meal than it use to in the lakes I fish. I have seen a lot of
fishermen that have to take a limit of fish to keep them happy and
support their egos. We need more fishermen doing catch and release.
You can brag just as much about your releases as you can about your
coolers full. I,ve been there done it so I know how it is. With all of
the electronics we have now it sure makes a change in our success and
maybe too successful
The Upper Peninsula Also Has Hundreds Of Brook Trout Streams, .
FORGET TO GIVE THEM SPAWNERS A BREAK AND ONLY
KEEP A "COUPLE" OF THEM SLABS FOR BRAGGING
THERE IS NO SAFE ICE IN THE UP!!
