Wisconsin INCREASING King and Coho stocking

Recommended Posts

Did I miss where they say that there is enough bait to sustain those numbers ? 

 

I'd like to see stocking numbers go up also , but not at the chance of crashing the system . 

 

Our DEC gets a gold star  from me  for pretty much everything they have done to maintain a world class fishery . Are they perfect , no . Nobody is . 

 

Didn't they over stock Lake Michigan a ways back and it took a long time to recover ? And I believe it has recovered from what I have read .

No, the Mussels hurt the baitfish populations so they reduced the predator numbers to compensate. The baitfish have rebounded very quickly since the lake came back up and the Zebras tapered off.

 

Lake Huron was over stocked intentionally to eradicate the Alewives. They still plant hundreds of thousands of Chinook in there even after the crash and count them towards our stocking quota in Lake Michigan.
